‘The Father’ kicks off Bedford Film Society’s 2022 season

Bedford Film Society has announced the 10 films that make up its 2022 season, following a ‘year off’ due to Covid restrictions.

Their short season kicks off on 7 February with the award-winning film The Father, starring Olivia Coleman and Anthony Hopkins – who won an Oscar for his role. At 83, he became the oldest ever recipient of the award.

You can see the rest of the season’s screenings at their website here and they will be featured in the Bedford Clanger’s weekly What’s On guide, published every Thursday.

Bedford Film Society screenings take place at the University of Bedfordshire Theatre on Polihill Avenue at 7.30pm on Monday evenings. There is plenty of free parking on site.

Membership is £30, which gives you free access to the season’s films, or you can go along as a guest and pay £4.50 on the door.

The Society was established in 1949, with the aim of “offering the people of Bedford and surrounding areas the chance to see some of the finer films of world cinema in a relaxing and appreciative atmosphere.”

Bedford Film Society’s Bert Guy said: “Our programme provides a selection of recent releases selected by our membership.

“We normally show a season of about 20 films from September to March, but for 2022, with the lifting of COVID restrictions, we are running a 10 film short season.

Bert attributed the longevity and success of Bedford Film Society to the loyalty and enthusiasm of its members.

“We are always pleased to see our friends returning as members, and we are delighted to welcome new members of all ages to the club. You can also just come and pay as a guest.”

Film projection is by DVD using original dialogue with subtitles for foreign films.
