We have a remarkable last minute addition to the festival - the Director of Filth and Fury, Julien Temple, is coming to take part in a Q&A prior to the screening of his documentary. Unfortunately his work commitments with Mick Jagger prevent him from staying until the end of the film but at 6.30pm on Wednesday 26th October at The Rex, you will be able to see this Question and Answer session prior to watching this documentary profile of the Sex Pistols. Please come armed with questions to ask Julien. This is a change to the programme as listed but we think one that you will all enjoy. Doors open from 5.45pm.
