Brindleyplace Film Festival

17 - 23 July


Will heroes beat the villains on the big screen at Brindleyplace’s free Film Festival? 

It’s the ultimate battle between good and evil at this year’s Brindleyplace Film Festival as heroes will face villains in a public vote for the final line-up on the big screen.

Taking place from 17 - 23 July in Central Square at Brindleyplace, the nominations for this year’s Film Festival are now open with Batman, Superman, and the Terminator all making the shortlist.

Nathan Sanghera, Marketing and Events Executive at Brindleyplace, said:

There are some fantastic films on the shortlist this year so, whether you love the classic romance of Top Gun, want to see the Avengers Assemble on the big screen, watch Men in Black save the galaxy or bring Charlie’s Angels to Central Square, make sure you vote!
Despite being FREE to attend, each year the Brindleyplace Film Festival just seems to get bigger and better, with over 100,000 people joining us in 2016, and this year is no exception. Putting the film choices into the hands of the public it will be interesting to see if good really does triumph over evil or if the villains come out on top!

As part of the Film Festival, one of Brindleyplace’s charity partners for 2017, NICE, Centre for Movement Disorders will also be screening a series of short films as trailers to raise the profile of the work they do to transform the lives of children and adults with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s and individuals recovering from a stroke.

Louise Watkins, Fundraising & Marketing Manager at NICE said:

We are thrilled to be the official charity partner for the Brindleyplace Film Festival this year. This is a great opportunity for us to shout about the life-changing services we provide and raise vital funds for our work with people experiencing a movement disability.

NICE, Centre for Movement Disorders will also be distributing a limited supply of the charity’s own NICE biscuits, alongside 1,000 bags of popcorn, donated by Chase Vodka, for visitors to enjoy throughout the Film Festival.

The films with the most votes will be shown during the Film Festival, as well as any additional films that receive multiple nominations, to see the complete shortlist and vote for your favourite film visit:

Voting closes on Friday 9 June and the full schedule of films will be announced shortly after.
