For five days in June, Midnight Film Festival rages - showing films without a break all day long. Begun in 1986 by local film makers, the festival guests include film industry giants but the focus is on new film makers and the atmosphere sunny (for 24 hours) and informal. There are no fancy cocktail parties just films all day every day. Films shown are a blend of classics by directing greats, great efforts by new comers and silent films put to live music. There are also discussions, where the informal attitude prevails and famous directors are quizzed on their desert island film selection for example and a festival competition.
