Plymouth Arts Cinema, in association with Pagan Phoenix SW, is delighted to be participating in BFI’s major UK-wide film and events season, In Dreams Are Monsters, celebrating the horror genre on screen, taking place at BFI Southbank and cinemas nationwide. Radical and provocative, horror has provided a community for those excluded from the mainstream since the inception of cinema; forcing audiences to confront their darkest thoughts and offering a platform to marginalised voices.
The cinema’s Season of the Witch films, workshops and talks are designed to reclaim the image of the Witch from the Horror genre, looking at the way cinema has portrayed witchcraft. From alluring femme fatale through teen rebels to women finding power and liberation, this selection of films about witchcraft, magic and the dark side provides an interesting take on the changing social position of women over the last sixty years.
British Art Show is the largest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK, giving people in cities across the country the opportunity to engage with work by the most exciting artists in Britain.
