New on our screens this week, Funny Cow, starring Maxine Peake, charts the rise to stardom of a stand-up comedienne in an all-male world. Also new this week, two French language films, Let The Sunshine In, capturing the complex nature of desire, and Custody, an explosive, gripping family drama with echoes of last years box office smash, Loveless. One-off screenings this week include a director Q&A following the Sunday screening of next Friday’s new release Beast.

After an exciting, busy opening week, we continue ¡Viva! Festival 2018 with a whole host of UK premieres from Spain, Latin America and beyond. Highlights this week include La Novia del desierto and Los Nadie. You can view the full ¡Viva! film programme here.
