'AN APPRECIATION OF FILM': THE LEICESTER FILM SOCIETY IN 1930S (TBC)
Founded in 1931, The Leicester Film Society aimed to promote wider interest in the cultural possibilities of the cinema and to screen ‘artistic films’ from Britain and Europe that commercial cinemas in the city were not screening. They were particularly interested in the silent films coming out of Ufa in Germany.
This illustrated presentation examines the films screened during this period, including Cinderella (Berger, 1924), The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari (1919), Westfront 1918 (1918) and Mutter Krausen (1930).
Screening Sun 15 Sep, 12.30pm.
