Spring is just around the corner.

To celebrate the new season, the British Council invites  you a short season of great new films from Britain.  The British Film Spring is presented in partnership with the British Embassy and 28 Cinema, with the generous support of PWC – and for one special event in partnership with UNICEF and 16 young Azerbaijani filmmakers.

From 8 – 12 April 2015, in 28 Cinema in 28 May Mall, you are welcome to join us and watch a selection of the best  of British new cinema – from classic adventure, to knockabout comedy, to great biographical drama, to the cleverest new cartoons.  Each film is worth seeing  - so clear your diary for the week, stock up on pop-corn, and prepare for a feast of British cinema.

Four of the films are Azerbaijan premieres. Mr. Turner and Pride and Shaun the Sheep are prize-winning new films;  Alfred Hitchcock’s The Ring is a rare chance to see an early classic from the days of silent film by the master. The Imitation Game brings Benedict Cumberbatch back to your screens – and The Story of Children and Film is the world’s first film about children in film – and it celebrates the achievements of 16 young filmmakers and their amazing one-minute films (supported by UNICEF) on the theme ‘Ability  is Limitless’. The festival will also bring the awarding winning British films, Paddington and Pride to Azerbaijani audience for the first time in English.
