Cinema Paradiso

Cinema. A visual tribute to the vivid stills that make up our lives. An artistic ode to the myriad hues that make up our experiences. A celebration of what it means to revel.

To watch a film is to enjoy the thrill of riding an emotional rollercoaster; to savour the adrenaline rush as you wrap your head around a plot twist; to realise that you have been holding your breath in sheer anticipation and you are ever-so-slightly dizzy. Cinema appeals to the most fundamental aspects of entertainment; it lets us feel. It lets us immerse ourselves into a world that is conveniently removed from our mundane one.

Festember '19 pays homage to the eternal power of cinema through the ages. Brace yourselves for the curtains to rise for the show of a lifetime: this October, relive the reel!
