Here is an idea to reel in film obsessives.
This month and next (July), Screen Argyll is supporting venues across Argyll, the Highlands and Islands to dive deeper into Wes Anderson films.
There are 22 events happening from Oban to Luing, Mull to Campbeltown, funded by BFI Major Programmes
On Mull, Screen Argyll is screening in partnership with the local aquarium.
‘Those of us who are obsessive about cinema know full well that the medium allows us to delve into our deepest desires and obsessions; the joy and community to be found in pursuing your passion, as well as the
cautionary tales that obsessive behaviour can bring,’ says Jen Skinner from Screen Argyll.
Films include Rushmore (15) (1998), Wes Anderson’s story of prep-school Max and middle-aged businessman Herman following their friendship, rivalry and affections for a first-grade teacher.
Others are The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (15) from 2004 and Fantastic Mr Fox (PG) made in 2009.
Isle of Dogs (PG) follows a boy’s odyssey through Japan in search of
his faithful hound.
Fantastic Mr Fox is on June 29 at Oban Phoenix Cinema, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is on July 12 at Tobernochy Village Hall on Luing, with Rushmore being screened at the same venue on July 13.
Isle of Dogs will be showing at CineMorr 77 on July 13 as part of Tiree Music Festival, Fantastic Mr Fox will be at Tobernochy, Luing on July 14, while on the same day Oban Phoenix Cinema will be screening The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and it will also be shown at Tiree Music Festival.
Mull’s An Tobar will be screening both Fantastic Mr Fox and The Life Aquatic on July 30.
