The Lighthouse (Members’ Choice) + WISFF winner Candle Cops

November 2

An hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers trying to keep a grip on their sanity and humanity on a remote New England island in the 1890s.

“As with The Witch, it’s the atmosphere that seeps into you like sea brine. You don’t watch this film, you are submerged in it.”
Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro Newspaper

“Amidst the dread, and dark humor, and bonkers imagery that makes The Lighthouse a weird little marvel, it’s arguably Pattinson who really drives it home as a horror film.” Jesse Hasinger, Nylon

Oscar & BAFTA nominations for Best Cinematography

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe, Valeriia Karaman, Logan Hawkes

The film will be preceded by a screening of the Winner of the WFC-sponsored Wimbledon International Short Film Festival 2021: CANDLE COPS, directed by Tony Collingwood, who will give an introduction and be available for a chat in the lobby after the main screening. See https://wimbledonshorts.com/
