Season of the Witch

Welcome to Season of the Witch, a classic retrospective series of Witch-themed cinema, all screening during the spookiest month of the year: October! 

Witches are a recurring staple of genre cinema, often providing an excuse for stylish exercises in cinematic form. Atmospheric drive-through B-Movies such as Night of the Eagle and City of the Dead are both riveting examples, as are Dario Argento’s memorable giallo Suspiria and Inferno
With films like Michael Reeves’ Witchfinder General the violent and lurid potential of the material becomes particularly pronounced, but so does the inherent thematic underpinnings, particularly around gender injustice and the plight of women in the domestic sphere. We see in many of the films in our programme, ranging from the artful, yet emotionally excruciating Carl Theodor Dreyer film Day of Wrath to the far lighter and hilarious Veronica Lake romantic comedy I Married a Witch
If you’re looking for less heavy material, the festival even sports a film for the whole family with the delightful (I prefer) Studio Ghibli flick Kiki’s Delivery Service, and with The Craft we have a cult classic for all the 90s kids out there!
