Cinema Rediscovered on Tour

We welcome back to GFT the Bristol-based festival of restored classic cinema, with seven truly unmissable screenings.

Five of the films make up '1971: The Year Hollywood went Independent', a selection of trailblazing classics that give a glimpse of an independent Hollywood before it was overshadowed by the birth of the franchise: Two-Lane Blacktop, Klute, Five Easy Pieces, McCabe and Mrs Miller, and The Last Picture Show.

The other two titles will be new discoveries for most audiences, and well worth making time for.

First is a 4K restoration of Melvin Van Peebles’ little known Nouvelle Vague infused debut feature The Story of a Three Day Pass - an edgy, romantic film set in Paris of 1967, and inspired by his personal experiences in the US Air Force. Later in September we have a one-off screening of Perry Henzell's follow-up to The Harder They Come. No Place Like Home has gone largely unseen as the negative was thought lost for more than 25 years. Found and restored, this road movie through Jamaica is the memorable last testament of an undeniably great filmmaker.
