Penwith Film Society's Autumn/Winter 2014 season.
Our mission is to screen the best film and cinema in Cornwall. Each season's films are chosen to appeal to a wide range of tastes outside the mainstream cinema. We hope you find the selection stimulating, and you come along to see some fantastic films on the silver screen. You don't have to be a member, but if you value the opportunity to see projected a wide range of interesting, moving and challenging films, please do join us.

Shot using the same cast over the remarkable period of 12 years, Boyhood charts Mason's progress from first grade to college without resorting to cliched big moments. We are following the small stuff here, and that allows us in to a believable and nuanced story of one boy's progress, and his relationship with his family. Shot using 35mm film throughout (which was the norm in 2002 and much less so now), this also stands as a lament for a vanishing medium.
