We don’t normally cover news or that sort of thing, but seeing as we were taken by surprise by this we thought it worth mentioning, for other folk running unaware. The British Premiere of Leos Carax’s Holy Motors, one of the greatest success stories of this year’s Cannes Film Festival will be live beamed in to cinemas across the country next week (Tuesday, September 18th). 

The screenings sync up with a major event at the Curzon Mayfair taking place that evening. Director Carax, for which Holy Motors marks a return to a significant hiatus from the world of filmmaking, will be accompanied for a post-film Q&A session by a couple of the films stars Denis Lavant and Kylie Minogue. We couldn’t find a complete list of venues, but we know for certain that one is taking place in our native Sheffield, while every cinema under the Picturehouse umbrella also seem to be holding events. Please let us know of any further venues in the comments section below.
