This season Eastleigh Film Festival (EFF) – Hampshire’s biggest event for cult cinema -, curated by The Point, announces a new-for- 2018 Pop-up Film Fest series, launching in February.

Focusing in on cult and classic cinema, the new series will screen different films in Secret Locations throughout the year. Launching on Monday 12 th February with Ridley Scott’s iconic sci-fi Blade Runner, all tickets will be priced at just £10. Eastleigh Film Festival celebrated a successful fourth year this autumn with over 500 people attending sold-out film screenings in unique venues around the borough. With a reputation for bringing films to life with added theatrics and immersive experiences, the festival will grow in the new year with the launch of its first Pop-up Film Fest event.

‘We’re so excited to be expanding Eastleigh Film Festival, taking the same momentum of the week-long event to individual Pop-up film screenings that are low on price but big on impact. Our festival has grown with each year so it felt right to programme additional events throughout the year, adding a twist with the Secret Locations.’ – Daniel Hill, Festival Director.

The film will be followed by sequel Blade Runner 2049 at The Point, Eastleigh on Monday 19 th February, giving fans of the genre the opportunity to attend a double-bill.
