Film news to keep you amused
Future Shorts, Europe’s leading programmer and exhibitor of short films, comes back to Scotland this fortnight with screenings in Edinburgh at the Bongo Club on Saturday 18 November from 6pm and then in Glasgow at The Arches on Sunday 26 November from 7.30pm. The November programme includes Claude Lelouch’s superb, rarely screened 1978 C’était un Rendez-Vous), a spectacular high-speed car race through the streets of Paris championed for its no editing, no tricks, no roadblocks method.
At the CCA in Glasgow there is a free but ticketed programme of independent and DIY films from international lesbian, transgender, feminist and queer filmmakers on Wednesday 22 November. Visit www.bildwechsel.org for more information.
Not only is there an exceptionally fine Italian Film Festival on the rampage (www.italianfilmfestival.org.uk) but there is also the superb Heist Almighty! And Mondo Italia! seasons at both the GFT and Filmhouse. On top of that, from Sunday 26 November, there is a season celebrating the work of legendary cinematographer Miroslav Ondricek, the master Czech lens man behind Amadeus.
