Eastleigh set for Film Festival this year

Eastleigh film festival

This month Eastleigh Film Festival (EFF), curated by The Point, returns to the Borough with 19 films set to be screened across 12 venues.

Running Monday 25th to Saturday 30th September, the popular festival is now in its fourth year. With a reputation for offering bespoke cinematic experiences, EFF offers audiences the opportunity to step inside the world of their favourite films.

‘We’re so excited to return this September for more immersive movie-going magic that’s big on impact but low on price. This year we visit new venues and return to audience favourites for another exceptional year of cinema!’ – Festival Director Dan Hill

Highlights at this year’s festival include the Die Hard Trilogy at three venues to match, genre-defining horror Carrie at Crestwood College, Michael Caine classic The Black Windmill at Bursledon Windmill and Mallrats at The Swan Shopping Centre. Festival curators have partnered with independent businesses and local venues such as restaurants, coffee shops, toy stores and one spectacular outdoor location for a large-scale screening.

A glamorous Opening Night Gala will open the festival and The Point will screen three cult films alongside contemporary classic La La Land as part of the venue’s Accessible Cinema strand. Alongside this, EFF will welcome industry experts to the Eastleigh arts hub to deliver workshops as part of a Film Careers Morning on 28th September, aimed at young people wanting to pursue a career in filmmaking.

All tickets are priced at £10 or less as part of the organisers’ aim to deliver film fans an affordable but memorable movie-going experience.
