Hull Independent Cinema is delighted to announce details of its new programme of films, bigger and better than ever before, running from March to June 2016.

The volunteer Trustee team at Hull Independent Cinema (HIC) have been busy working behind the scenes to put together a programme of films that encompasses acclaimed drama, heart-warming and quirky comedy, gripping thrillers and thought-provoking real-life stories. All of the films in the new programme are showing in Hull for the first time or after a very limited run in the mainstream cinemas, in line with HIC’s aim of bringing the best of new independent, world and art film to the city.

Following audience feedback, the new programme features a wider range of foreign language programming, and has more films than ever before, as HIC constantly expand their activity.

The new season includes at least six HIC screenings per month, plus more under the WeWatchFilms and Cult Cinema Sunday brands. For the first time, HIC will be showing a week-long mini-season of films, with a retrospective of Hitchcock films featuring talks from Hull University film experts and leading up to an exclusive screening of Hitchcock / Truffaut, a documentary exploring the influence Hitchcock had on other film-makers.

Damien Greco, HIC Head of Programming, said, “We think this is our best programme of films ever. We’ve listened to what our audience have told us about which venues they like, and what sort of films they want to see, and we’ve also taken the opportunity to try some things for the first time.”

The HIC programme launches with Love, the latest film by controversial director Gaspar Noe, which gained notoriety on its release for its use of strong real sex, on Monday 7 March at Hull Truck. Other highlights include French drama Dheepan, winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival; Son of Saul, Hungarian historical thriller which won this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film; and Youth, the acclaimed drama starring British actors Michael Caine and Rachel Weisz.

Full programme information including booking and ticket details can be found at HIC’s online store. Tickets can also be purchased in person at Artlink on Princes Avenue or on the door at most screenings (subject to availability). Tickets are priced at £5 except for Hull Truck screenings which are £6. HIC members receive a £1 ticket on the price in return for a £15 annual membership fee. Details of the membership scheme are also on the online store.
