Brentwood Arts Cinema Club

It was a pleasure this morning to welcome back to Phoenix Jill Dimmock from the Brentwood Arts Cinema Club, whose 2013 season of monthly meetings starts next Sunday. Jill spoke briefly about the history of the Club, now in its ninth year, and also shared something of her own enthusiasm for cinema – in particular her appreciation of film as an international art form. The full schedule of screenings for the year is listed on the Club’s website, and as usual it’s a rich mix – from the Marx Brothers classic Duck Soup through to an award winning Iranian film of 2011 which Jill described as giving a view of everyday life in that country not often portrayed in the mainstream media. As well as the films themselves notes are provided, and there’s usually a chance to discuss the films with other members. The cost for a year’s membership is £36, which works out at just £3 per meeting – and the Club warmly welcomes new members. For more information, including a full schedule of the films, visit the website, and to listen again to the interview click here:
