Arcadia has a 12 Certificate? [UPDATED]

UPDATE: I put the wrong date down previously. Arcadia is screening on Monday the 7th of September. Not the 8th. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.


The Portobello Film Festival, London’s hippest and trendiest film event, is showcasing Arcadia! It will be showing on the 7th of September, from around 8pm. I really recommend coming to see the whole programme (from 6pm), as it’s sure to show a load of cool films, including Hip Hip Hooray by fellow director Lynsey Miller. It’s FREE entry and I’ll be there, so come and say “Hi!”

For the full details look here.

On a side note, I thought it was funny that Arcadia had been rated unsuitable for anyone below the age of 12. I’d always seen it as a film that a lot of kids might enjoy, even if it does have some scary, or at least unsettling, moments. I guess my childhood featured a lot more disturbing Czech stop-frame animations…
