In Dreams Are Monsters: Season of the Witch.
Plymouth Arts Cinema, in association with Pagan Phoenix, are delighted to be participating in BFI’s major UK-wide film and events season celebrating the horror genre on screen, taking place from at BFI Southbank and cinemas nationwide.
Our Season of the Witch films, workshops and talks is designed to reclaim the image of the Witch from the Horror genre. We look at the way cinema has portrayed witchcraft. From alluring femme fatale through teen rebels to women finding power and liberation. This selection of films about witchcraft, magic and the dark side provides an interesting take on the changing social position of women over the last sixty years. The films range from a fairy tale about contemporary African witchcraft to romantic comedies and folk horror. At the centre of each film is the character of the witch: magic, but also subversive, dangerous and powerful in different ways. We include cult favourites, rarely seen classics and also two short films.
We are delighted to receive funding from the British Film Institute for Season of the Witch which is part of the In Dreams Are Monsters BFI Blockbuster season. In Dreams Are Monsters is supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and the ICO. #InDreamsAreMonsters
