LUC FESTIVAL 2015 Screenings

FESTIVAL DAY 5: World Of Tomorrow & Southland Tales

We’re halfway through #LUCFEST2015 and it has all been marvellous so far – the glorious central committee have even given some key staff a few hours out of the bunker off for R&R. Be assured though, we have electronically tagged them, for the safety of the public at large.

Thanks to everyone who has come along or helped out so far and don’t forget there is plenty more exciting stuff in the second half of the programme.

Hey everyone – Our kickstarter campaign ends tomorrow (Sunday) night and we still need a boost to hit our target. So if we are able to reach our target by the deadline – we will select one backer at random to win LUC’s very own ipad mini (as you can imagine the timewasters in the IT dept are in uproar).

Of course, in addition to the possibility of winning the ipad, there are also loads of cool rewards available for backers from £3 upwards. If we can get to £2500 then we will be able to expand the programme and keep ticket prices as low as possible.
