Family Film: Brave
On learning that her parents, King Fergus and Queen Elinor, plan to marry her off to one of the sons of her father’s allies, Princess Merida flees the castle.
Bargaining with a witch for a spell to change her fate, Merida is granted a magic cake, which, when she feeds it to her mother, turns her into a bear. Struggling to carve a path for herself, Merida has inadvertently caused chaos in the kingdom.
Women in Film
In the centenary year of the 1918 suffrage act, celebrating women’s voices has never been more important. With this in mind, we present a season dedicated entirely to women in film. All the films in this season are directed or co-directed by women, and most are female-focused in their narrative.
