Our very own local film festival is coming in November 2014. Here is an opportunity to see some of the best films of the last eight decades — those you have always wanted to see, those you would like to see again, or those that sound intriguing. Films that deserve to be seen on a large screen rather than the TV set.

Haddenham & District Rotary Club, in collaboration with local film groups in Haddenham, Cuddington, Long Crendon and Bishopstone, will be showing eight classic films across the four villages over the weekend of 14 — 16 November.

Each film will be representative of cinema from one of the decades between 1940s and the present day. It is hoped to have a short film to precede each main feature. The full programme of films will be announced in the autumn.

In Haddenham, the Youth and Community Centre will be the venue for the showings. The partners are the World Cinema Club and the U3A Film Group.

In the neighbouring villages, the films will be incorporated into the programmes of The Village Picture House (Cuddington, Bernard Hall), the Long Crendon Film Club (Library) and the Bishopstone Cinema Club (Village Hall).

All films in the festival are open to the public, subject to the usual film classifications. You won't need to be a member of any of the film clubs to attend.

Watch this space for details of the full programme, and how to book your tickets.
