Are you a movie buff? ¬†If so, you should consider traveling to the United Kingdom this month.¬† ¬†Since 1991 the city of Bath holds an annual film festival (this year from November 12-21) celebrating local and international filmmakers.
On Sunday November 15, the festival is running free short films at Green Park Station.¬† They will be premiering films from local first time filmmakers as well as short clips of other movies. At the Little Theatre Cinema, there will be screenings of major motion pictures, such as TheInformant,Glorious 39, and A Serious Man. There will also be showings of movies that have been out for a few years. The festival will go on for about a week and a half and will be held at various venues, such as the Little Theatre Cinema, Komedia, and Chapel Arts.
If not for this annual festival, many films would not be screened in the city of Bath at all. Although it is community oriented, the Film Society is striving to become internationally recognized.
To get to the Bath Film Festival, you can take a flight to Bristol or London and rent a car.¬† While Bristol is closer to Bath, it would be less expensive to fly into London.¬† You could put the money you save toward your car rental or hotel accomodation.¬† And, if you‚Äôre flying into London, it‚Äôs more likely you will be on a non-stop flight, thus ensuring a smoother trip without the inconvenience that sometimes accompanies a connecting flight.
