What is a film festival?
A film festival is an extended screening of films in either one venue or a series of linked venues in different cities or even countries. Film festivals might be competitive and involve showings of the latest cinematic releases or have a theme focusing on specific genres such as film noir or horror films or the work of particular directors like Quentin Tarantino.
The best-known film festivals across the globe are the annual and long-established Venice, Cannes and San Sebastian Film Festivals while later arrivals on the scene are the Toronto International Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival. Venice dates back to 1932 while Spain's San Sebastian Film Festival was where audiences saw the worldwide release of the iconic films North by Northwest and Star Wars. The Berlin International Film Festival holds its place as the largest in the world based on attendance figures while the most recent addition to the film festival calendar is the International Film Festival and Awards in Macao which joined the ranks in 2016.
Enjoy a film festival with a difference
While traditionally film festivals have been about competition, your StubHub film festival tickets give you entry to screenings with a difference. One such is the Rooftop Cinema Club. As the name suggests films are screened on rooftop locations around the world. Panoramic city views and the setting sun only add to the atmosphere while comfortable deckchairs and Wi-Fi headphones enhance your overall experience. With its fabulous acoustics, it's no surprise that the Festival of Film at the Royal Albert Hall in London puts a spotlight on movies with soaring instrumental scores like Jaws and Star Wars. Screenings are accompanied by a live orchestra.
Another London venue is Somerset House where two Summer weeks see an outdoor film festival with the movies projected onto the building's beautiful facade. Film-inspired DJ sets and food stalls add to the party atmosphere before the screening starts. If your film taste is a little more Bollywood than Hollywood then you'll want to catch the Bhojpuri Film Awards. These are hosted at different venues across the world including the O2 in London. The Bhojpuri Film Awards celebrate films in the Bhojpuri language which is spoken in parts of India and Nepal. Whatever your film passion you can celebrate it with Film Festival tickets from StubHub.
