Film4 launches its ‘Behind Bars’ film season


To celebrate the Film4 backed upcoming cinema release Starred Up, Film4 are launching a ‘Behind Bars’ season of prison movies, screening on the channel from Thursday 20th – Saturday 22nd March. With the success of the Akira Kurosawa season (read more about that here), which ran on Thursday mornings throughout February, a marathon of much acclaimed prison movies is something to certainly look forward to.

There will be a total of seven prison movies screened throughout the three days, all airing during the late evening, including films such as Bronson (2008), Escape From Alcatraz (1979), and The Escapist (2008) including many more. Film4 are perhaps the greatest UK movie channel for screening independent films and the best of world cinema, backing some of the greatest British movie gems and upcoming talents in the UK. Film4 themed seasons are always something to look forward to and the Behind Bars season will no doubt be worth a watch.
