Graduation, Romanian director Christian Mungiu’s new film opens this week at the Showroom. Set in the familiar environment of a mainstream high school, this is his most accessible film to date. (Previous films include the incredible yet nightmarish, 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days, the story of a woman’s struggle for an illegal abortion in 1980s Romania, and the chilling Beyond the Hills, a shocking drama based on the true story of an attempted exorcism in a rural monastery.)

A very exciting addition to this year’s festival is the Cinema Truck, a lorry which expands and converts to become a 100 seat cinema, keep an eye out for this at the train station and bring the family as there are screenings for all ages running . As Sheffield celebrates its love of the outdoors over the Outdoor City weekend, you can come and appreciate the outside from the inside.
