Our friends at Open City Docs Festival have kindly offered The London Word readers the chance to win tickets to some of the exciting and innovative screenings taking place as London’s global documentary festival returns for its third year.
With such a diverse programme to pick from, Open City Docs Fest have chosen some of their highlights – and we’ve got a pair of tickets for each up for the winning.
I Am Breathing (Friday 21 June, 6.30pm): an intimate record of the last months of Neil Platt, a man paralysed by Motor Neurone Disease but determined to write a letter to his baby son so he may one day know about his father.
Matthew’s Laws (Friday 21 June, 9pm): a profoundly moving film that asks how far we, as a society, are able to make room for people who suffer from conditions within the autism spectrum.
Nocturne (Saturday 22 June, 8pm): an extraordinary new film exploring Benjamin Britten’s uneasy relationship with the world and how the bloodiest century in history affected the work of this great composer.
To enter, simply email: email@example.com with ‘Open City Docs Competition’ in the subject line and the film you’d like to see. Winners will be picked at random and notified on Thursday 20 June.
Open City Docs Fest takes place 20 – 23 June at UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre and other venues around London, and boasts a hearty programme of more than 100 films from across the globe, including 30 UK premieres, expert masterclasses, workshops, panel discussions, comedy and documentary walks.
