The Worst Person In The World - Norway (Joachim Trier)

The final film in Trier’s Oslo trilogy — after Reprise and Oslo, August 31st — The Worst Person In The World earned its star Renate Reinsve the best actress prize in Cannes and a Bafta nomination, and is up for two Oscars - best international film and best original screenplay. Reinsve stars as a twenty-something woman who begins this turbulent romantic drama as a medical student and later pursues various creative avenues.

Screening date: March 4

Flee - Denmark (Jonas Poher Rasmussen)

Coming off a festival run that brought it kudos including Sundance’s world cinema documentary jury prize and Annecy’s best feature Cristal, Flee is a major contender in both documentary and animated feature categories, and has earned three Oscar and two Bafta nominations. Writer/director Rasmussen and a multi­national producing team tell the story of a man who, on the verge of marriage to his boyfriend, reveals the secrets of his journey from Afghanistan to Denmark as a child refugee. Neon released in the US in December.

Screening date: March 7

Spencer (Pablo Larrain)

The latest from Larrain is a portrait of Princess Diana, teetering on the cusp of marital breakdown. In common with Jackie, his previous film about a high-profile woman in crisis, the focus here is likely to be on the central performance, in this case a memorable turn from Kristen Stewart, who is nominated for best actress at the Oscars.

Screen date: March 8
