The same.. but different!
Filmstock is back with all the old favourites that made it one of Britain's most beloved independent film festivals, with a few new flavours thrown into the mix.
Over 4 days in November, Filmstock will present a strong programme of short films (narrative, documentary, experimental, animation and music video), as well as a selection of new documentary and narrative features.
There will be the ever-popular catharsis of the Filmschlock screening and the infamous socials where filmmakers, audiences and volunteers all hang out over good food, good coffee and good liquor.
There will be screenings of work by filmmakers from across the festival's history as well as the introduction of live podcast recordings with The Cinematologists, live music courtesy of Luton's incredible jazz venue The Bear Club and delicious soul food breakfasts and afternoon cookouts that will add a new culinary dimension to proceedings.
Events will take place in 4 different screening environments, including The Bear Club, Youthscape, and the newly-refurbished Arts Centre, The Hat Factory - Filmstock's original home from 2000-2009. All the venues are in the heart of Luton's cultural quarter, close to the train station (25mins from central London), to make for an intimate and easily accessible film festival.
Tickets are available to purchase from the Filmstock website.
