Welcome to the Pilton Palais. For 2013, we have some of the best movies from the period since the last Festival on offer. Hopefully we have ones that you will want to see again, ones you missed first time round and ones that sound intriguing that you’d like to see for the first time.
We also have three Advance preview screenings this year, they are: Svengali, Muscle Shoals and of course our Sunday morning 3D preview.
As always the Pilton Palais marquee is situated at the bottom of the Acoustic field. We have ten 3D films this year! And we're using the highly acclaimed Dolby 3D system which uses re-usable glasses, so I implore you to return the glasses to the stewards after the shows so they can be cleaned and made ready for the next 3D presentation.
Hard of Hearing subtitles will be displayed where available and the marquee is also fitted out with an induction loop system.
Also this year we will be showing short campaign films for the charities Small Steps & Bhopal Medical appeal before the features.
P.S. If you have made a short or feature film and wish it to be considered for screening at next year’s Festival please contact me on PiltonPalais@calne.demon.co.uk between February & end of April 2014.
