Film Preview: BBC FOUR World Cinema Awards 2009, 5 – 22 January, Filmhouse, Edinburgh

31 Dec

Diving Bell and the Butterfly_1The best channel in the UK is also the sponsor of one of the biggest honours in the area of foreign language film making, the BBC Four World Cinema Awards.

The 2009 awards are announced on 31 January and Edinburgh’s Filmhouse will be screening all five finalists over the next few weeks.

The films being shown are:

  • Persepolis
  • Gomorrah
  • The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
  • 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
  • The Orphanage

The only one of those I haven’t seen, 4 Months…, sounds like it could also be the favourite to win, though I have a soft spot for both Diving Bell and The Orpahanage.

Head over to the Filmhouse website for full details.
