Honeyland documents the life of Hatidže Muratova, a keeper of wild bees in a remote Macedonian village. Her livelihood is threatened by a neighbouring family who try to cultivate honey, but disregard the traditional methods. Honeyland offers an eye-opening perspective on experiences that should resonate even for audiences halfway around the world. The most awarded film from the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, winning the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize, a Special Jury Award for Cinematography, and another Special Jury Award for Originality.

Fisherman’s Friends is the story of three co-workers from a London music company who go to the fishing village Port Isaac on the shores of Cornwall, to have a stag party for one of the three. When their plans go awry, they end up listening to a town concert given by some of the local fishermen. Wanting to still have some fun, the groom challenges one of his co-workers to sign the group to a record label. What ensues is good fun spiced with a little romance and a lot of good music. The film is based on a true story about ‘Fisherman’s Friends’, a group of Cornish fishermen from Port Isaac who were signed by Universal Records and achieved a top 10 hit with their debut album of traditional sea shanties. 2019 UK (M) Drama/Musical 1hr 52min
