Dinard British Film Festival: five good reasons to go – Brittany

  • 1 To see the best of British production

  • “The festival is the first marker of British cinema in France and, today, our duty is to present the best new British films and to discover new talents”, underlines the artistic director of the festival, Dominique Green. Thus the “Irish Eyes in Dinard” section presents new films from the Republic of Ireland, co-productions with Northern Ireland, which provide a better understanding of their delicate social issues. Without forgetting some original nuggets.

  • 2 To take advantage of a rich and diversified program

  • Some critics of British cinema sometimes caricature it by reducing it to two components: social and comedy. The selection concocted this year “provides a vibrant denial. It is a panorama of dazzling diversity that is offered to us, ”says Vincent Rémy, deputy for culture. Diversity of the films in competition but also of the different themes with evocative titles: “Eccentrics & Free Spirits”, “Girl Power”, “It’s Raining Men”, “Past Present & Future Cinema” and “Irish Eyes in Dinard”.

  • 3 For special sessions, tributes and master classes

  • Classic themes are also revisited and new stories told. Three special screenings will also be offered, including the screening of the film “The Princess”, by Ed Perkins, which approaches Princess Diana from another angle, who continues to fascinate 25 years after her death. This documentary features bold and immersive storytelling using exclusively archival footage. Finally, just a few months after his death, the Dinard British Film Festival will pay tribute to the immense Peter Brook, legendary figure of the theatrical world with the screening of “His Majesty of the Flies”, a film from 1963. Another tribute will be paid Sunday at Queen Elizabeth II, with the screening of three documentaries, from the INA madelen collection, on her official trip to France in 1957.

  • 4 To see the stars of the festival…

  • There is, in Dinard (35), a perfect setting to host a film festival.
