Sullivan's Travels (1941) // Preston Sturges

Front of House Supervisor: Jessie

"A satirical masterpiece by writer/director Preston Sturges, which follows a big-shot Hollywood comedy director who yearns to make a socially relevant drama called Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? - but eventually learns that his gift for making people laugh is his greatest contribution to society, especially in Depression-era America."

Watch on Amazon Prime
  You, the Living (2007) // Roy Andersson 

Development Officer: Matt
"Prepare for the upcoming release of Roy Andersson's latest About Endlessness by revisiting his earlier sublime, surreal, melancholy-filled tragicomedy. Through a series of meticulously crafted vignettes, Andersson explores nothing less than all of life in its triumphal joys and absurd sorrows."

Queen & Slim (2019) // Melina Matsoukas
Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel
"Queen & Slim's first date isn’t going well. They’re ready to call it quits when Queen gets shot, a policemen’s dead and the two have nowhere left to turn but the road. How do you outrun a force that’s greater than you? Not easily! But these two outlaws are ready to fight!

Watch this raw, urgent and powerfully real Bonnie & Clyde tale on Amazon Prime."
Gamish // Edward Ross

From Edward Ross, the Edinburgh-based creator of the graphic novel Filmish and former Filmhouse Front of House employee, comes Gamish: A Graphic History of Gaming. This lovingly illustrated book takes the reader through the history of video games, from the pioneering prototypes of the 1950s to the modern era of blockbuster hits and ingenious indie gems. Why do we play? What makes games so special? And how do games shape the world we live in? Exploring the people and politics behind one of the world’s most exciting art-forms, Gamish is a love letter to something that has always been more than just a game.

You can purchase Gamish through Edward's wesbite here!
