This season of POP-Corn films was curated by local filmmaker, Mat Sheldon:

I make films infused with love; finding beauty in everything and everyone. Love the subtleties of life. Have a particular fondness for directors’ breakthrough films. Don’t like shouting except in character.

I’ve selected a series of films that delve into the mysteries and complexities of time travel, the passion and vivid tragedy of first love, and the celebration of women in film in honour of International Women’s Day.
