Attention, cinephiles! Cork Cine Club has announced season 18 of its independent world cinema series will begin later this month.

Cork Cine Club gives local audiences the chance to see a range of world cinema not usually available on commercial cinema screens. The new season will again bring the best of independent international cinema to Cork audiences, from comedy, crime and thriller to western, romance and musicals.

Films from the US, Senegal, Australia, France, Morocco, Russia, Zambia, the UK, Italy and Israel will be shown on Thursday nights at 8pm in St John’s Central College on Sawmill Street.

The season opens on 25 January with the critically-acclaimed American film ‘The Florida Project’, a sympathetic film about people living on the impoverished fringes of Florida’s tourist traps. Six year old Brooklynn Prince is tipped for a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role.

‘Rosalie Blum’ is a sweet but never saccharine French comedy about three misfits who bring out the best in each other, on 22 February.

A first film from Zambia, ‘I Am Not a Witch’ is a debut film that tackles the story of a girl in rural Zambia accused of witchcraft, on 15 March.

Set during an endless Italian summer in the 1980s, ‘Call Me by Your Name’ is the number one film choice of the Guardian’s critics in 2017. It is a romance about the the pain and pleasure of first love of a bored youth and a handsome older man. It shows on 12 April.

Cork Cine Club’s season concludes on 19 April with the Israeli film, ‘In Between’. Three female flatmates in Tel Aviv fight the constraints of their Muslim faith and families in a bittersweet and empowering tale of women whose lives are rarely depicted on screen.

Other films to be shown are ‘Mimosas’ (Morocco), ‘Dark River’ (UK), ‘Goldstone’ (Australia), ‘Loveless’ (Russia) and ‘Félicité’ (Senegal).

Tickets are €8.50 (full)/€7 (concession) and are sold at the door. Season tickets are €60 (full)/ €45 (concession) and include all ten films. There will be no film on 15 February, 29 March or 5 April due to college closures.

Foreign language films are subtitled, and shorts may be shown before the feature film.
