Following last year’s celebration of the Dangerous Dames of film noir, GFF18 will salute the big screen’s Rebel Heroes. These characters fought the system, challenged rank injustice, broke all the rules and refused to bow before the forces of implacable misguided authority. This is a collection of male mavericks and misfits who left an indelible impression on the movies. We promise to bring you a big screen classic every morning for absolutely no charge, from Henry Fonda’s resolute people’s champion in The Grapes of Wrath to Paul Newman’s unbreakable egg-chomping chain gang member in Cool Hand Luke, Sidney Poitier’s shackled convict in The Defiant Ones and Steve McQueen’s ice-cool San Francisco cop in Bullitt. Rise up and join us.

Please note: Tickets for all Rebel Heroes screenings are free and are only available in person at GFT on the day of the screening. Maximum 2 tickets per person.
