Queens Film Theatre (QFT) is continuing its Watch At Home programme throughout the current phase of Lockdown – and beyond – with a series of films to rent or watch free.
Launched in April 2020, QFT Player was designed with a little taste of QFT at home. During lockdown so far they have screened over 30 shorts, documentaries, features, an opera, and collaborations with Cinemagic and the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s.
Most of the content is free to watch with no need to subscribe. Some new releases will be available to rent, which will help support QFT.
Currently available to rent is Love Child, a warmhearted portrait of an Iranian couple and their son as they flee the country. Filmed over a six-year period, they struggle to build a new life in Turkey.
Through Eva Mulvad’s documentary both their hardest and happiest moments are brought movingly close.
Available free is Evergreen. It is the tale of Nathan who begrudgingly visits his childhood friend Edgar. Now worlds apart, with Edgar still living in his childhood home, their shared past still lurks in the back of their minds, impossible to ignore. From Northern Irish filmmaker Dominic Curran.
Welcome to the Dark Ages is how in 2017, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty of The KLF, returned after 23 years of silence. No longer a pop group, they are now undertakers planning to build a monument made from the remains of dead people. It is available to rent now.
It is hoped that QFT will be able to open in the future, but as well as the films above there are a host of others available.
