Preston hosted the International Film Festival as it comes to the University of Central Lancashire for the 10th time to bring culture and cinema to our lives.

From Monday 17th – 24th October, films from all across the world were on the big screen. UCLan broadcasted films from different languages including Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Korean and German but do not worry they will all have English subtitles. On 17th October, the award-winning Italian writer and director Luca Vullo launched the event. His most recent work being his film Influx that focuses on Italy through the perspective of both well-established and newly arrived immigrants in London. This film was shown on the opening night of the festival and shortly followed by an audience discussion with the director himself.
Valeriy Smolienko, Lecturer from the School of Language and Global Studies, said: “We’re extremely proud to host Preston’s International Film Festival for the tenth year running. The festival has grown in popularity year-on-year. It’s become a community event as well as something that students enjoy and value as part of their experience at UCLan.”
