Before the screening you’ll attend the inaugural Kino Collective Oscars. A short ceremony where we, the Kino Collective, will honour a selection of films that we feel weren’t recognised by The Academy. Not every feature on our list is a masterpiece but we feel they each bring something different to the table and we’d like them to get the appreciation they deserve. You're invited to cast your vote for the Best Film, Best Actor (in a specific role), Best Director and Best original song by following this link:

'Ostensibly a haunted house story, it manages to traverse a complex world of incipient madness, spectral murder and supernatural visions' - Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine
