The Auteur Film Festival plays at the Curzon Bloomsbury in March/April

3 March 2015

A director is considered an Auteur when his or her individual style and complete control over all elements of production give a film a recognisable, personal and unique stamp.

Through its history, the Bloomsbury cinema in London has been associated with directors of singular vision, so it is fitting that it will reopen its doors with a festival dedicated to their work. The Auteur Film Festival is being presented to acknowledge the diversity in world cinema, to celebrate the resurrection of a cultural institution, and reignite debate about the origins of greatness when it come to cutting edge cinema.

The full programme for the Auteur Film Festival has now been confirmed. The titles are listed below. Speaking personally, it's a stonking collection.
