Calling the Tune 2014

img_4760-copy21.jpgIt is with great pleasure that we invite you to the second ‘Calling the Tune Film Festival’ on 20-22 June 2014.

This year’s programme features an exciting selection of films celebrating the relationship between music and film. All of the films will be presented in the Old Vinyl Factory (formerly EMI Hayes) and opens with a film conference and special screening of Mike Hodge’s legendary Get Carter (1971).

On Saturday afternoon we will be showing a double-bill of Elvis films, Jailhouse Rock (1957) and King Creole (1958). Elvis’ UK records were pressed at the Hayes factory, so this will be a unique chance to watch two of his classic films, experience a retro fifties disco and see some Elvis memorabilia.

Sunday starts with a community event and screening of archive footage of Hayes from the 1960s, followed by a live performance which melds music and film.

You can purchase tickets for the festival on our Tickets page. We look forward to seeing you!
