Event description

Description

The White Bus Ltd is delighted to welcome you to the 10th annual Southend-on-Sea Film Festival, the largest film festival in Essex.

We are absolutely thrilled to be presenting, in association with The Lindsay Anderson Foundation, the 50th anniversary screening of this iconic British feature, released on unsuspecting audiences in 1968. Directed by Lindsay Anderson, if.... (note the lower case and four dots!) is a biting satire of English public school life, famous for its savage finale. Filmed at the time of civil unrest in France, which included the occupation of universities by dissatisfied students, by a director strongly influenced by the 1960s counterculture, this powerful, subversive drama has been compared to Jean Vigo’s 1933 classic Zero de conduit , a reference that Lindsay Anderson has acknowledged

Of course, none of this would be possible without the support that you, and our sponsors, provide, and we thank you all most sincerely.

The Festival Team and I look forward to welcoming you to the Southend-on-Sea Film Festival.
