IN COOPERATION WITH THE BRITISH EMBASSY AND PARK CINEMA, THE BRITISH COUNCIL IN AZERBAIJAN IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THE FIFTH BRITISH FILM SPRING. WE ARE BRINGING THE MOST POPULAR, THOUGHT-PROVOKING, AND CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NEW FILMS FROM THE UK TO BAKU, AZERBAIJAN.

The 2019 edition of the British Film Spring ran at Park Cinema Flame Towers between 17 and 24 May, and brought the British Council’s Diversity Week in Azerbaijan to a close. We screened seven remarkable and diverse films including The Favourite, Dark River, Obey, The Happy Prince, Disobedience, On Chesil Beach, and Colette.

The Favourite, a 2019 Best Picture Oscars nominee, and starring Olivia Colman in an Oscar-winning role, opened the British Film Spring. All films were screened in English, with subtitles in Azerbaijani.
