The committee of Cheltenham Film Society would like to wish all our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The programme starts again on 8 January with the excellent A Fantastic Woman (see below). There are nine films after that, including three in our CFS Extra series, which this season is devoted to three women directors: Jane Campion, Deepa Mehta and Agnès Varda.
It’s a shame to nag, but we really need you to join our email list. We’re trying to do the right thing by GDPR, which means we can only email you about forthcoming events and innovations if you specifically give us permission. There are sign up forms all over the site. We promise we will only email you when we have something worthwhile to tell you about, we will not sell [cont'd.]
Our next film, on Tuesday 22 January at 19:45, is Lean on Pete. It is this season’s coming-of-Age story. A 15-year-old boy forms a bond with a clapped-out racehorse, Lean on Pete and saves him from slaughter. The pair travel across the Pacific Northwest, facing obstacles with courage and optimism. Exquisite cinematography and an emotionally charged lead performance from young Charlie Plummer.
