We are delighted to welcome director Charlie Shackleton to join in person at the screening on 10 November. 

A spellbinding cinematic collage of hundreds of films from around the world brings together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive. Together, they contend with a fragile existence lived solely through these traces of their work. The Afterlight itself exists as a single 35mm film print, further eroding every time it screens, a poignant reminder of the ephemeral power of cinema. LIFF presents a unique chance to see this mesmerising film before it eventually disappears entirely.
