Winds of Change: Cinema in ‘62 will offer free screenings of the standout films from the year 1962. . It was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, tensions in the Cold War, Kennedy in the White House and the dawn of political change in the UK.

Films screening include To Kill A Mockingbird, Dr No, Lawrence Of Arabia and The Manchurian Candidate and each will have a special introduction from GFF co-director Allan Hunter.
