042: Cheltenham International Film Festival

Recently the At the Flicks team had to hold an emergency meeting. The Summer movie season was about to start, Neil was worried there would be no highbrow films, Jeff was annoyed there would be weekly superhero features and Graham was fuming as no Mel Gibson movies were in the lineup.

What were we to do?

Suddenly the answer became clear. The first ever Cheltenham International Film Festival was taking place in Cheltenham (obviously) at the end of May. We had to be a part of this. So we volunteered to help (well, two of us did), while we carefully planned which films in the excellent line up we were going to watch.

If you are still reading it will come as no surprise to you that this is not an official Cheltenham International Film Festival podcast, just the At The Flicks memories of this wonderful event captured for our listeners.

Follow us through four days of the festival as we help in various capacities, meet some very interesting people and watch some great and some not so great films.

Thank you to everyone who organised and participated in this first Cheltenham International Film Festival. We are already looking forward to the second.

Just to be clear, this podcast is not affiliated with the Cheltenham International Film Festival and all reviews and opinions are from the At The Flicks team only.
