Filmgoers across the country can enjoy special theatrical screenings of Matt Palmer's award winning thriller CALIBRE at Curzon cinemas nationwide and the GFT in Glasgow. The programme will commence on Sunday 21 October at Curzon Aldgate, London with a special Q&A screening with lead actor Jack Lowden, actress Kate Bracken and producer Al Clark at 2.30pm. The screenings are part of the latest BIFA Presents programme, a series showcasing and promoting the best of British independent cinema and bringing selected features to new and diverse audiences across the country.
CALIBRE follows two life-long friends on a weekend trip to a remote Scottish village that descends into a never-ending nightmare as they attempt to cover up a horrific hunting accident. The men wrestle with intense paranoia and escalating fear as their friendship disintegrates and the locals close in on the truth, turning a weekend hunting trip into a desperate struggle for survival. A fresh, exciting twist on genre conventions, blending echoes of John Boorman's Deliverance with a social realist eye for character and community, CALIBRE subverts audience expectations, evolving into a taut moral dilemma about the limits of friendship and loyalty.
