Escape to the Overnight Film Festival, a new communal cinema experience where your ticket includes accommodation at the legendary Queens Hotel in Eastbourne over the weekend of February 26, 27, 28. Three special guest curators will lead a programme of unique screenings, immersive discussions and sensational parties in a dreamy location by the sea.

They’re converting the hotel’s splendid ballroom into a bespoke cinema equipped with 35mm, 16mm and digital projection capabilities. There will be nine film screenings spread over the weekend: one on Friday night, four on Saturday and four on Sunday. There will also of course be parties every night, so bring your dancing shoes! The films have been selected by their three guest curators: actress Ariane Labed, teaching fellow in the Africa Department at the School of Oriental and African Studies Emma Dabiri and the exciting and emerging London based director Jenn Nkiru.

On Saturday and Sunday they’ll have a break at lunch time and dinner for you to head out of the hotel and explore the many varied delights of Eastbourne. Plenty of outstanding fish and chip shops nearby, not to mention the picturesque seafront.
