Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.

Based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book and helmed by “The Nightmare Before Christmas” director Henry Selick, Coraline is the first high definition, stop-motion animated feature to be shot in 3D. In the film, a young girl walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life where everyone has buttons instead of eyes, with loving parents and everything she could ever wish for. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when Coraline is invited to stay forever and politely declines her fantastical adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit other mother tries to keep her forever!

We select this collection of short films from around the world for some of the youngest
audiences at the festival, and every year we enjoy seeing how audiences react.
Once again the stories we’ve chosen come from a whole range of different countries: this year we journey to France, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and the USA. There’s a penguin whose attempts to serve drinks at a birthday party lead to utter chaos, a mystery fish who will only swim at the surface of the sea, and a little girl who
insists on moving in to live with the animals at the zoo. A large green bird has some difficulties with a big bell and a very frisky egg, and we learn what happens when some dots start thinking (and eating) outside the box. Plus – and this is an absolute first for Discovery Film Festival – screen giant Samuel L. Jackson gives us his finest, funkiest, flashiest Tyrannosaurus Rex in a truly jaw-dropping, mind-boggling and foot-tapping
four minutes! All these short films are in English or are dialogue free. These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience

Sita Sings the Blues | Nina Paley | 2008 | USA – Saturday 6pm

Sita Sings the Blues is a wonderful animated film written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley. Episodes from the story of Ramayana and scenes from the artist’s own life are animated and set to songs performed by 1920s jazz singer Annette Hanshaw. Sita, and this re-interpreted myth of Ramayana  are brought to life using the strikingly modern technique of vector graphic animation as the ancient mythological and modern biographical plots intertwine inviting new interpretations and understandings.

Film critic Roger Ebert was “enchanted” and “swept away” by this film and called it one of the year’s best films in 2009.

The 39 steps

The 39 Steps | Ralph Thomas | 1959 | UK – Saturday 8pm  

Ralph Thomas’s 1959 version of the 39 Steps uses Central Scotland and the Trossachs as the backdrop for the adventures of Richard Hannay (Kenneth More) . With one famous scene filmed on the bridge over the River Balvag in nearby Balquhidder.

The film commences as Hannay arrives in London and saves a nanny from a hit-and-run driver before discovering that she’s actually a spy trying to stop the theft of military secrets. After the woman is killed, Hannay goes to Scotland in an attempt to stop the plot’s leader himself. Along the way he has several narrow escapes, dodging both the police and assassins, as well as getting handcuffed to a girls school instructor (Taina Elg) who doesn’t believe his wild tale.

We were delighted that our first screenings took place in our Picyurt House,  cinema at Doune the Rabbit Hole. A place we know and love.

Where we screened over 50 films from silent film to music videos, political documentary to experimental forms we aim to inform, challenge and entertain.

An amazing, Oscar nominated, Brazilian animation that uses the power of imagery and music to portray a powerful, deep and challenging message.

She does not.

The Glasgow School

The Glasgow School | Grant McPhee | Scotland | 2016 | 75mins – Saturday 8pm 

Like Grant McPhee’s recent feature Big Gold Dream, The Glasgow School documents the excitement of the late 70s/early 80s Scottish Post-Punk scene but with the focus now solely on the legendary Postcard Records. Still a work-in-progress the film gives unique accounts – and the most complete history yet of Postcard, Swamplands and Postcard 2.
