Borderlines Film Festival 2021

Borderlines Film Festival

Borderlines Film Festival, online, 26 March–11 April 2021, from £5 - Book now

Borderlines 2021 is a virtual festival featuring 32 feature film previews, along with director and talent Q&As for you to watch from home. The stacked programme features some of the biggest and most anticipated titles from the world of independent film, from Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in Francis Lee’s bracing period romance Ammonite to Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman in Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his own stage play, The Father.

Our picks of the fest include Kelly Reichardt’s quietly astounding frontier fable First Cow and Minari, a gentle depiction of childhood and the immigrant struggle as a Korean-American family stakes its claim on the American Dream in 1980s rural Arkansas. Away from the big names, The Salt in Our Waters is a startling, well-observed tale of culture-clash which sees a worldly, modern artist journey to a small fishing village on a mangrove isle on the Bangladeshi Delta.

You’ll want to book passes or individual tickets quickly for this one, as there is a limited allocation of virtual seats for each title.
