We want to make Cornwall Film Festival 2018 affordable to everyone

…which is why we’re putting on a FREE ENTRY community screening of The Tale, a FREE ENTRY space-themed film pod on The Moor, and trialling a groundbreaking ‘sliding scale’ ticket pricing system for three other films.


Sunday 11th Nov: Start 13.00 End 15.00

Dir Jennifer Fox | 2018 | USA | 104 mins | Drama, Thriller | CFF Advisory: Trigger Warning

Described by Jordan Hoffman for the Guardian as ‘the mother of all #MeToo movies’ and nominated for two Emmy Awards, The Tale is an emotionally raw and destabilising investigative thriller that punctures the insidious workings of unchecked power and lays bare the mechanisms of memory. Jennifer Fox’s (Beirut: The Last Home Movie) landmark autobiographical work stars Laura Dern (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Twin Peaks) as a journalist who rediscovers a story she wrote aged 13 about her “special” relationship with two adult coaches. Determined to uncover the truth, Jennifer embarks on a journey that stirs her seventh-grade self to reawaken and the loving stories she has told herself for decades to unravel, in a narrative that seamlessly toggles between past and present. The Tale is guaranteed to provoke strong reactions in any audience.

The Tale will be screening with FREE ENTRY at the festival in a supported group with a guided discussion.


Deep Time: Meteor | 10th and 11th November, 11am-5pm | The Moor, Falmouth | FREE ENTRY

As part of their Dark Skies: Bright Stars programme, Mayes Creative have commissioned artists Christina Romero Cross and Andrew Bird to create a ‘Deep Space’ themed film pod within which a small audience can view work from experimental artists. Step inside their meteor-shaped mini-cinema to view a rolling programme of films inspired by ‘Deep Space’ and ‘Cosmic Rays’ projected onto the pod’s interior surface in constellations. This sculptural and cinematic wonder has toured festivals throughout the summer and lands on the Moor in Falmouth on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November, with free entry from 11-5pm.


‘Sliding Scale’ Ticket Pricing

This year we are introducing a groundbreaking ‘sliding scale’ ticket pricing system with the aim of making the festival more affordable to more people. Credit for this idea must go to the folks at the amazing Leeds Queer Film Festival! Here’s how it works: if you want to see Foxtrot on Friday, On a Knife Edge on Saturday or Shoplifters on Sunday (and you definitely should!) you can either buy a standard price ticket through The Poly website or visit the box office in-person on the day and tell us how much you want to pay, based on what you can afford. The price tiers are £2, £4, £6 or £8 and the graphic below gives some basic guidelines about which tier might be right for you, but the choice is entirely yours! So why not come on over and bag yourself an affordable ticket to one, two, or all three of these incredible films?
