Special guests at OXIFF 2017.

The 2017 Oxford International Film Festival kicked off in style on the 5th of May at the Phoenix Picturehouse with the gala screening of Stanley a Man of Variety, and we were lucky enough to be able to welcome star and co-writer of the film Timothy Spall to Oxford to introduce his film and take part in an interactive Q and A with the audience. 

Timothy jetted in from Belfast, where he was attending the premiere of his latest film "The Journey", to attend the OXIFF. The audience were delighted in his extended Q and A after the film, which shed a light on the writing process and how he went about tackling playing every character in the film!

Timothy's Q and A kick started a great weekend of independent film with filmmakers from the official selection in attendance during ever session, showing the enthusiasm the directors, actors, producers and writers have for Oxford's very own international film festival.

We can't wait to bring more amazing premiere films to Oxford next year and again give audiences a chance to directly connect with the stars and filmmakers. See you in 2018!
