When the Festival first began in 1996 we needed to demonstrate that cinema was alive and well and no longer in decline. Later our efforts concentrated on showing how good films will travel to where you live and don’t always involve a drive into town. Those battles have been won. I suppose the one relevant for 2012 is that the technology has come of age. Not only does the Rex, bless its heart, get the pictures the right way up and in the right order but the visuals and sound are more spectacular than they have ever been. So Elizabeth Taylor who is our featured film star this year can visit your village in her full splendour, better even than when she first appeared in New York. We are plotting the course of her remarkable career with a series of best films from the early days to full maturity. We have also chosen a selection of unforgettable comedy classics, which we know will make you laugh and hopefully won’t permanently damage your rib cage. So come and help us celebrate another season of cinema magic, better and more accessible than ever before.
