Fire up your imagination! Watch an incredible collection of short adventure films on the big screen, stories of human endurance and breathtaking environments.

Plus hear from the amazing Anna McNuff, joining the festival on stage. Anna is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. She recently completed an incredible adventure running the distance of 100 marathons through Britain completely barefoot!

Named by The Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Anna has a capacity for feats of exceptional endurance, most of them solo, having previously run self-supported along New Zealand’s 3000km Te Araroa Trail.

Festival Director Steve Scott will present the evening and there’ll be prizes from the tour sponsors.

Summer 1939.

Uncle Vanya

Filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London in August 2020.

Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).

However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge. As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope?

A new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson. As the majority of theatres across the world remain in darkness, Uncle Vanya’s exquisite ensemble overcome the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the production, which is currently nominated for four Olivier Awards.

WHY? Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times

‘Toby Jones is superb in Chekhov’s great tragicomedy’ ★★★★★ Financial Times

‘A superlative company achievement – most of us will be lucky if we see a better cast in our lifetimes’ ★★★★ The I

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors (PG)

Nosferatu (1922) is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre.

Notable as the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting and unforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilled cinema goers nearly 100 years ago.

Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screening of the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend of electronic and acoustic instruments performed live by the composer and, combined with FW Murnau’s iconic images, makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience.

Chris has worked in a variety of musical genres including folk, theatre and early music. He’s a regular musician at Shakespeare’s Globe and was also one of the musicians on BBC’s Poldark, appearing in series 1 and 2. He also writes and composes.
