Deal Film Festival @ The Landmark Centre, Saturday 29th September 2018

Doctor Who and the Daleks 2.jpg

The first edition of the Deal Film Festival really does have something for everyone. It begins with an up-to-date tribute to the Saturday morning pictures in the form of a family-friendly digital HD screening of Dr Who and the Daleks (1965), the original film adaptation of the television series and the Daleks' first appearance in colour. This is followed by the hilarious but moving What We Did on Our Holiday (2014), starring erstwhile Tenth Doctor David Tennant.

There will be illustrated talks from a variety of Kent filmmakers and academics, plus a unique opportunity to join in a discussion on the question "Should We Shoot the Film Critics?" in the company of film critic Derek Malcolm and broadcaster and author Gavin Esler. The evening brings an opportunity to see the most successful French-language film of recent times, breaking box office records in several countries, Intouchables (2011). In all, the day offers nine screenings and talks from which to choose.

Kent Museum of the Moving Image will be open as usual throughout the afternoon, making Deal a centre of cinema once more - for the day, at least! For more information and to book tickets to the Deal Film Festival @ The Landmark Centre, visit:
