WINCHESTER Film Festival has announced its programme for 2014.

The festival, established in 2010, aims to screen great films in great locations, showing both classic and more recent films in atmospheric places and spaces in and around Winchester.

Each year it strives to find new and interesting locations that provide the settings to rediscover classic films, or even catch them for the first time.

This year organisers offer Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train on a tennis court, The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the cathedral, Orson Welles’ F for Fake in an art gallery, and the classic Ealing comedy The Ladykillers in a High Street bank.

As in previous years proceeds go to charity.

The main beneficiary will be Blue Apple Theatre, and the proceeds from The Ladykillers will go to the Alzheimer’s Society.

In the past horror film Blair Witch Project was shown in a wood and The Swimmer at River Park Leisure Centre.

The programme: Thursday, April 3: Knights of the Round Table, The Great Hall; Friday, April 4: The Ladykillers, Lloyds Bank; Saturday, April 6: Strangers on a Train, Winchester Racquet & Tennis Club; Monday, April 7: A Bunch of Amateurs, Chesil Theatre; Tuesday, April 8: Henry's Crime, Theatre Royal; Wednesday, April 9: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Cathedral; Friday, April 11: F For Fake, The Gallery, Discovery Centre; Sunday, April 13: Great Expectations, Assembly Room, St Johns House.
