Every single one of the films that we have chosen is unmissable but we’ve tried to pick out a few highlights for you.
Launch night: We open the festival with a hilarious comedy that deals a serious message. Yes Men Fix the World will leave you feeling that anything is possible and is thoroughly entertaining. We’ll be rolling out the Green Carpet for our first night and you’ll be able to join us after the film as the theatre bar is kept open until late with tunes inspired from film.
Darwen in Film, on Sunday 10th February, we will feature old archive footage of Darwen and surrounding areas from across the ages. We have an exclusive screening from the Sam Hanna collection and we’ll be putting Darwen Days on the big screen. The Sam Hanna film is from the North West Archive and features Darwen Saddlers J Houghton and Sons and Dawen Days features Cine footage from 1930s up to the present day. We also have the colourful animation from the Clitheroe Line Community Rail Partnership and community artist Alastair Nicholson.
Remembering Wainwright On Monday 11th Feb we remember Alfred Wainwright with a film courtesy of Eric Robson’s striding edge and a walk to the edge of Darwen Moor.
Sponsored by Darwen Town Council and Lancashire Community Railway we encourage everyone to arrive by train at Darwen Library Theatre.
