As cinemas begin to reopen, Northampton Filmhouse is set to reopen on June 11. As part of their reopening, they are launching a new season Shockwaves: The Best Emerging Filmmakers from Around the World.

The season which will feature a fascinating selection of films that highlight diverse and under-represented narratives, casts and places. Films being featured include Rare Beasts, the debut feature from writer, star and director Billie Piper, Darius Marder‘s Oscar-winning debut feature Sound of Metal starring Riz Ahmed, and tense thriller Surge, from debut British filmmaker Aneil Karia, starring Ben Whishaw.

Shockwaves: The Best Emerging Filmmakers from Around the World has been made possible with support from Film Hub Midlands through funds from the National Lottery. Film Hub Midlands support people to watch, show, and make films in the Midlands.
