The page and screen have successfully (and legally) been whisking us away from the banal day to day for quite some time now. Whilst the smirking bohemians might have you believe only French cinema from 1912 or progressive interpretation of Tibetan folklore are worth your time, books and movies are enjoyed daily by the merest of mortals ...and that's why we have reviewed some for you.

More than half a century later and the festival is still going strong, attracting film makers from just down the road, and across the globe, to pop-up cinemas dotted all over the city. It even has its own after party and Opening and Closing ceremonies.
