Films by Country


The Angels’ Share

Ken Loach

Scottish lads decide to liberate a barrel of single malt in Ken Loach’s caper comedy direct from Cannes. “This is British comedy at its warmest and most pleasurable; cask strength, unfiltered and neat.” — The Telegraph

Beyond the Hills

După dealuri

Cristian Mungiu

Romanian actresses Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan shared the Best Actress Award at Cannes as former friends slowly driven apart by differences in faith in this new film from the director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.

Le Tableau

Jean-François Laguionie

Le Tableau is a captivating animated French-language fable taking place inside a painting. “This consistently enjoyable, inventive and beautifully crafted tale is a color riot suitable for all ages.” — Boyd van Hoeij, Variety

Our Children

À perdre la raison

Joachim Lafosse

Joachim Lafosse’s psychological drama provides insight into and analysis of a real-life case of maternal infanticide. “A deeply moving performance by Emilie Dequenne, and a devastating look at a young woman come undone.” — Screendaily

Toons for Tots

A programme for the very youngest Festival-goer. We had children from three to six in mind when we selected these animated gems from around the world. Culminating in the rather scary but happily resolved The Gruffalo’s Child.
