Preston will be celebrating a decade of international cinema next week when UCLan hosts its 10th International Film Festival.Advertisement
The events will showcase films from around the world in different languages – all with English subtitles and run from October 17-24.
The festival will be opened on October 17 by award-winning Italian writer and director Luca Vullo. His film Influx will be shown on the night followed by an audience discussion.
Valeriy Smolienko, Principal Lecturer from the School of Language and Global Studies, said: “We’re extremely proud to host Preston’s International Film Festival for the tenth year running. The festival has grown in popularity year-on-year.
“It’s become a community event as well as something that students enjoy and value as part of their experience at UCLan.”
Each film will be screened in UCLan’s Mitchell & Kenyon Cinema inside Foster Building at 7pm. Tickets cost £3 (£2.50 concessions) per film or you can buy a general pass for £15.
Tickets are available here.
The film festival follows UCLan’s European Day of Languages event which took place in September. The University welcomed more than 100 Lancashire school children through its doors to celebrate and learn more about different languages and cultures.
