New Cinema Guide February - March 2018

Find the latest films in our new Cinema Guide

26 January 2018

Time to download our new Cinema Guide for February - March 2018!

We're so excited to bring you all the latest films, including hot Oscar nominees The Shape of Water, Phantom Thread and Lady Bird, plus The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme, new family favourites, a Dundead treat and more.

“With Dundee Women’s Festival taking place every year in March, it seems fitting that this guide features wonderful films by two female directors, Greta Gerwig and Clio Bernard,” says Head of Cinema, Alice Black. “Others have women as their focus, including a fascinating documentary about Hedy Lamarr, the Hollywood starlet-come-secret inventor who is now finally being recognised for her contribution to the technology industry. And of course, there are many films in these pages that are enriched by women in central creative roles, including a restoration of the 1928 Indian silent film Shiraz which features a new score composed by sitar player Anoushka Shankar.

“The film industry certainly has some distance to go in terms of equal voices but progress is being made and we are happy to play a small part in it by having these works on our screen. We are looking forward to the day when it will no longer seem necessary to even draw attention to the fact! It is our particular pleasure to welcome local filmmaker and researcher Shona Main back to DCA to host a special event for the Women’s Festival around Angry Inuk, the first film to be made by a female Indigenous Canadian filmmaker.

Now the nominations are out, and the countdown on till this year’s Oscars, it’s that time of the year when we ask you to make your predictions. With a year’s free tickets to DCA cinema up for grabs, you've just got to have a go at the best cinema competition around! And here's hoping for a diverse mix of films and talent picking up nods this year.”

See you at the cinema soon - and don't forget to say #helloDCA on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
