Festival Update: Wildlike, World of Tomorrow + Southland Tales

The glorious central committee have permitted LUC Festival marketing dept to come out of the hermetically sealed chamber they call home to dispense some exciting programme information.

First up, on the opening day of this year’s festival we will be screening the acclaimed independent drama Wildlike. This tale of a troubled runaway and a lonely backpacker in the wilds of Alaska has already won a stack of awards on the US festival circuit. More info soon, but in the meantime here is the trailer…

We are also thrilled to be showing Don Hertzfeldt‘s amazing World Of Tomorrow on the big screen, followed by one of LUC’s favourite movies, the mind-bending epic Southland Tales. Both will screen as one event on Wednesday 11th November at the Spa Centre Cinema.

Book your place at these fine events as well as the other six days of #LUCFEST2015 by grabbing a festival pass for just £35 via our kickstarter campaign.
