We are thrilled to announce two new additions to the LIFF30 film festival programme, both screening at Hyde Park Picture House. Tickets for both Moonlight and My Life as a Courgette are on sale now.
We are delighted to announce an exciting late addition to the LIFF30 programme, the profoundly moving new drama Moonlight, one of the most acclaimed films of the year so far. An intimate character study, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighbourhood of Miami. Confronting and transcending stereotypes of race and sexuality, the film is a vibrant and poetic meditation on identity and contemporary African American life anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast.

Another late addition to the LIFF programme is a treat for animation fans, the delightful new French stop motion feature, My Life as a Courgette. A big hit at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Claude Barras’s film has appeal for both adults and children and is wittily written by Girlhood director Céline Sciamma. Courgette is the intriguing nickname for a 9-year-old boy. After his mother’s sudden death, he is taken to a new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first Courgette struggles to find his place but eventually learns to trust, finds true love and at last a new family of his own.
