Eastleigh Film Festival returns with weekend of interactive screenings 

Eastleigh Film Festival returns to The Point Eastleigh with a new look next month. 

On Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October, you can  enjoy a weekend of cinema that encourages you to take the lead role, with interactive experiences for all ages.

Gather la Familia for Sing-a-long-a Encanto on Saturday 15 October at 11.30am and 3pm. Sing your heart out with the live host who will teach you some dance moves, help you create some magic and show you how to use your free interactive props bag at these official screenings of Disney’s smash-hit musical. 

Then later that evening, Saturday 15 October at 7.30pm, grab your coconut shells and join the quest for the Holy Grail (or Foley Grail!) with Compass Presents’ Monty Python and the Foley Grail. Watch as one of the most laugh-out-loud films of all time is made even funnier by the additional element of audience participation with live sound effects. 

For a change of pace, iconic 2000s tearjerker The Notebook, starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, will be screened in style on Sunday 16 October at 2.30pm. Get into the carnival spirit with complimentary popcorn and ice cream from Eastleigh’s own Daniela’s Ices, then recreate one of the film’s most iconic scenes at our selfie station before taking your seat for the main event – tissues will be provided!

Charlotte Hall, Creative Director at The Point Eastleigh, said: “Eastleigh Film Festival is a feast for the senses this year as audiences can experience these classic films in a heightened way by singing, playing or eating along! It promises to be a brilliant weekend with plenty of that movie magic.”
