Hello <<First Name>>,

This week marks a year since we first closed our doors in 2020. It was an incredibly challenging time, but thanks to your amazing generosity we are still here today. We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us during this time, and we can't wait to welcome you back to Filmhouse once the time is right. 

Until then, we'll continue to bring a weekly dose of film recommendations from our team, straight to your inbox. We hope you enjoy them, and we'd love to hear from you!

Kiki's Delivery Service (1986) // Hayao Miyazaki
Marketing Officer: Abbie

"I recently continued my discovery of all things Ghibli with Kiki's Delivery Service - a delightful coming-of-age film about a young witch who must spend a year living alone as part of her training. Sweet, funny and moving, it quelled my desire for exploring new unfamiliar places, even if only for a while!"

Breathless (1960) // Jean-Luc Godard

Edinburgh Cinema Club: Isobel

“Car thief-turned impetuous murderer Michael soon faces life on the run and concocts a plan to flee to Italy. But first he must convince his true love, Patricia, to go too.”

Celebrating it's 61st birthday this week, the edgy filmmaking still plays brilliantly."

Fitzcarraldo (1981) // Werner Herzog

Belmont Head of Cinema Operations: Colin

"In Fitzcarraldo the overwhelming message is the hubris of man's exploitation and colonialization of the natural world. A glorious failure on a rickety steamship; Caruso blaring, Kinski wide-eyed and wide-mouthed."

The Biggest Little Farm (2018) (PG) // John Chester
Education Recommends

An EIFF favourite, The Biggest Little Farm follows an American couple as they try to develop a sustainable farm in California.  This documentary educates on farming practices, the food chain and sustainable living. Beautiful and engaging, as well as featuring many adorable animals!

Movern Callar // Alan Warner

Front of House Supervisor: Jessie

"Morvern Callar focuses on the titular character, a 21-year-old stuck in a dead-end job in a desolate port town in the west of Scotland, and her strange actions upon finding a disturbing scene on her kitchen floor one December morning. Callar's unreflective, Scot's vernacular narration supplies the reader with rich descriptions of images and actions. However, Warner, who calls it an existential novel, uses her voice to avoid the character's emotions almost entirely - though Callar shares exactly what music she is listening to, giving the remarkable effect of a soundtrack running behind her voice (mostly 90's rave tunes and Walkman mixtapes of postwar jazz). Transplanted from Oban to cheap Mediterranean hotels, the story's moral codes are troubled, and in this ambiguity and surreality, we find great poetry."
