Widescreen Weekend 2020

In 2020 we introduced a new format—Widescreen Weekend: Theatrical Cut. While this year saw a slightly shorter festival, we still delivered big, bold cinema experiences with 70mm screenings, Cinerama and cult classics.

Our Restorations & Rediscoveries strand brought back the magic of the big screen with beloved classics, musicals and restorations. Women in Widescreen: Mother Cutter celebrated legendary female editors with cult favourites and blockbusters. Kids’ Club screenings offered widescreen fun for all the family, and our Friday night special event saw historian Denis Pellerin exploring early 3D cinema, followed by iconic 50s horror Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D.
