THE big screen rules this week, with cinematic opportunities busting out all over, writes Sammy Jones.

Glance your eyes across this little round-up, and get set for a reel-y great weekend!

The OXDOX International Film Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and as part of the festivities, The Buszy will be screening four films from the Oxdox selection.

First to view, tomorrow night, is the Four Horsemen – ‘the debut feature from director Ross Ashcroft which reveals the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster.

‘Twenty-three leading thinkers –frustrated at the failure of their respective disciplines – break their silence to explain how the world really works.’

It will show at 7pm at the Elder Gate base.

The event will also include a live panel discussion from the Oxford Union, being hosted in various other cinemas around the country.

Tickets are just £3, and those who love documentaries, love panel discussions and want to get a perspective on the economic system should make sure they are seated for this one.

On Saturday, Independent Cinema MK team up with MK Festival Fringe for a hands-on training session with Magnificence Revolution, a London-based company who power devices using only cycle power.

Tickets to the workshop which runs 10am to 4pm, cost £10, £5 for concessions, and includes entry to the evening film, the 1948 classic Bicycle Thieves...which will be powered entirely by peddling.


If you want to see the film at 6.30pm, but want to skip the workshop, then you’ll pay a fiver, £3 for concessions.
