Vanuatu/Australia enter Ventnor Film Society with “Tanna”

On Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th September, Ventnor Film Society returns with a new programme of acclaimed British and world cinema.

The Society will once more be screening each film on two evenings, usually Tuesday and Wednesday. Everyone is welcome to come along; there is no membership and there is no need to be a member of the Arts Club to attend.


This season we will be screening a diverse programme of recent award winning films from France, Germany, UK, Vanuatu/Australia and Iran, including the winner and two nominees of the 2017 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. With thrillers, black comedy, wartime drama, arty autobiography and a tale of star-crossed lovers, we have put together a programme with something for everyone, in English and in the original languages with subtitles.

The dramatic volcanoes, lush forests and white beaches of the Pacific island of Vanuatu are the setting for our second Oscar nominee, Tanna, the story of young forbidden lovers who must choose between following their hearts and the traditional culture of their isolated tribe.
