Duns Film Club Programme
September 2019 to April 2020
This season’s Film Club theme is ‘Celtic Connections’, with a programme of eight of the best and most popular films with a connection to Scotland.

There is the award-winning western Hell or High Water, directed by Scotland’s David Mackenzie; the 1930s classic The Thirty-Nine Steps, based on a John Buchan novel, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and set in Scotland; the black comedy Shallow Grave, directed by Danny Boyle and acclaimed the most successful British film of 1995; Local Hero, directed by Bill Forsyth and set in Scottish locations; and (we must have a musical) Sunshine on Leith with songs by The Proclaimers. Mrs Brown, starring Judi Dench and Billy Connolly, will be shown to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Duns Castle, as it was in these beautiful grounds that the Balmoral Castle scenes were filmed.

Most of the films in our programme have been nominated for multiple Oscar and BAFTA awards. All screenings are on Sundays at 4.00pm at the Volunteer Hall, Langtongate, Duns. Everyone over the age of 16 is welcome.
