A LOCALLY-made short film will accompany the main feature at Keighley Film Club's next screening.

The inclusion of shorts in its programme is part of a club initiative to support local filmmakers and showcase their work.

Main picture at the June 16 event, at Keighley Picture House, will be Polite Society.

In the movie, Ria Khan, played by Priya Kansara, believes she must save her older sister Lena – Ritu Arya – from her impending marriage.

"After enlisting her friends' help she attempts to pull off an ambitious wedding heist in the name of independence and sisterhood – but the outcome is not what she intended," says Alan Watkinson, for the club.

The film, which has a 12A certificate and a running time of one hour 44 minutes, is written and directed by Nida Manzoor.

Review website Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 91 per cent rating.

Mr Watkinson adds: "Reviews hailed the cultural, generational and gendered aspects of this action-packed martial arts comedy. Manzoor was singled out for one of the best debut films of 2023.

"If you enjoyed Bend it like Beckham or Little Women, then this is a film for you!"

Doors will open at 5.30pm and the programme begins at 6pm.
