Cheltenham IFF has been cancelled and we are currently looking at the possibilities for an online version of the festival for the same time, 25th - 31st May, if we can find a streaming platform that can provide the back-end and get the agreement of at least some of the sales agents.
With that mindset engaged, here's an online version of the programme for the cancelled Spring Viewing Session:

113 delegates from 24 Societies enjoyed Batcombe’s legendary hospitality with great food and films. The highest-scoring films were the feel-good The Peanut Butter Falcon and the outstanding documentary Honeyland both achieving scores of over 90% accompanied by some great shorts sourced by Chris Baker. We’ve already heard that some groups have shortlisted both The Peanut Butter Falcon and Bait for their forthcoming seasons, while Transit and Aniara were the most divisive titles of the day, one delegate describing the latter as “absolutely brilliant” while others were less convinced!
We will continue to monitor the take-up of the featured titles by South West-based member groups – please let us know if you will be programming any of them (including the shorts). Full details of the audience reaction scores are shown below.
