Something Left Behind introduced by David Gedge

Something Left Behind will be introduced by The Wedding Present’s frontman, David Gedge at Deer Shed 10.

Pop-up Puppet Cinema presents JAWS

Pop-up Puppet Cinema presents JAWS

Ah the famous Jaws theme tune. We all know it, even if many Gen Z-ers haven’t actually watched the film before. The suspense filled “dun dun, dun dun, dun dun”. A little too scary for some Deer Shedders, you might say, so we have something even better: Pop-up Puppet Cinema presents JAWS! Pop-up Puppet Cinema is like Punch and Judy colliding with Hollywood. They condense classic films into live puppet shows, mocking the originals with plenty of warmth and admiration.

Pop-up Puppet Cinema presents Back to the Future

Pop-up Puppet Cinema presents Back to the Future

Pop-up Puppet Cinema take on another all-time classic film, this time from the 1980s sci-fi hit. Back to The Future. We all know how the original story goes: mall-town California teen Marty McFly is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown goes awry, but what will Pop-up Puppet Cinema have in store for this one? I, for one, am extremely excited about a puppet DeLorean!

E.T the Extra Terrestrial

E.T the Extra Terrestrial

A film that, to Generations X and Y, needs no introduction. Directed by Steven Spielberg, the classic 1982 family friendly sci-fi film stars a cute green alien named E.T. who is stranded on our planet and his Earthling friend Elliot. Elliot must summon the courage to help E.T. escape Earth and return to his home planet, but the odds are stacked against them. This tale of friendship, empathy, kindness and adventure is an absolute must see for the Gen Z-ers among us.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

You know that familiar feeling when you’ve done something wrong and have to pluck up the courage to tell your better half? Well, when that sense of dread reappears, just be thankful you’re not Rick Moranis, the scientist father of a teenage girl and boy, who accidentally shrinks his and two other neighbourhood teens to the size of insects! In this film for the whole family, the teens must now fight diminutive dangers, all while their father searches for them, attempting to avoid the dog house!

The Vinyl Revival introduced by Graham Jones

The Vinyl Revival introduced by Graham Jones

From the makers of the acclaimed Last Shop Standing comes a new documentary film, The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made it Happen. It asks why the tables are turning again and explores the massive increase in vinyl and why so many new indie record shops have appeared over the past few years? Based on the book by Proper Music Distribution founder Graham Jones, who will introduce the film, The Vinyl Revival… interviews the new and established record shop owners, musicians and music industry pundits as well as experts on culture and music.

American Interior

American Interior

After finally securing ex-Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys for the Deer Shed Main Stage, we immediately wanted to screen American Interior. In 1792, John Evans, a farmhand from Snowdonia travelled to America to discover whether there was a Welsh-speaking Native American tribe walking the Great Plains. Over 200 years later, distant relative Gruff Rhys retraces the explorer's route through the continent by means of an investigative concert tour. A unique project that blurs the boundaries of music, literature and film and investigates what really happened in the heart of the new world.

The History of Future Folk

The History of Future Folk

The History of Future Folk is the (perhaps slightly exaggerated) origin story of the two extra-terrestrial beings, General Trius and The Mighty Kevin, who formed the comedy bluegrass band Future Folk in 2004 and have been entertaining crowds in the human city of New York ever since. Their goals are threefold: save their home world, prevent mankind's destruction, and finally get booked for some gigs. For anyone scratching their heads at this point, think of the musicomic genius of Flight of the Concords, but even more out of this world!

Aardman: Jim Parkyn

Aardman: Jim Parkyn

Aardman is perhaps the best production company in the world at creating family friendly animations. Jim Parkyn has worked with Aardman since 2000, starting on Chicken Run, and has played a part in most productions since then, including Wallace and Gromitand Shaun the Sheep. We’re lucky enough to have Jim showing Deer Shedders how to make model Gromits, as well as giving a talk on the process of Aardman’s stop-motion films.

Wallace & Gromit: Close Shave

Wallace & Gromit: Close Shave

Business is booming for Wallace and Gromit's new window-cleaning service and life's pretty dandy at West Wallaby Street, especially when the new venture introduces Wallace to the fragrant Wendolene, owner of the local wool shop – and a rather ferocious mutt named Preston. When a sheep unexpectedly turns up at 62 West Wallaby Street, it’s a great opportunity for Wallace to try out his latest invention, the Knit-O-Matic. But with the malevolent Preston on the prowl and some strange sheep rustling going on, it would be a disaster if the Knit-O-Maticfell into the wrong hands...

Wallace & Gromit: Wrong Trousers

Wallace & Gromit: Wrong Trousers

When money troubles prompt Wallace to take in a lodger, life at West Wallaby Street gets complicated for poor Gromit. Forced out of his room to make way for a cool-as-a-cucumber penguin called Feathers McGraw, it's not long before he feels well and truly usurped as Wallace’s faithful companion. There’s something not right about this penguin and when Gromit spots a 'Wanted' poster for a criminal 'chicken', it would seem his suspicions are correct. Meanwhile, the helpless Wallace finds himself under Feathers' control – quite literally! The dastardly penguin has adapted Wallace's Techno Trousers for his latest heist and he’s going to get Wallace to carry out his dirty work...

Paper People

Paper People

A powerful film about making art as a volunteer in the Calais Jungle, and how this led artist Suzanne Partridge to create The Paper People Project in the UK. Suzanne visited the Calais Jungle with the idea that someone there would want to paint. What she found was a need for people to make art like she’d never encountered before. What people depicted in their artworks in such dire circumstances astounded Suzanne: “In the context of witnessing death and trauma which all had suffered or were still enduring, it was remarkable to me how anyone managed to paint a flower or a bird.”

The Runaways

The Runaways

After their home life is turned upside down, three children and the family's donkeys escape across the backbone of Northern England, confronting both the harsh landscapes and what it means to be siblings. This humourous and uplifting film is a throwback to classic children's adventure films but with a modern feel. The adult stars are BAFTA Best Actress Award-winner Molly Windsor, Tara Fitzgerald from Brassed Off and Mark Addy from The Full Monty, and both of those films are clear influences, while also celebrating donkeys, trains, and the beauty of Yorkshire from Whitby to the Pennines.

Mirai

Mirai

Each year we like to pick at least one Japanese anime film to screen at Deer Shed. Mirai is about a young boy who encounters a magical garden which enables him to travel through time and meet his relatives from different eras, with guidance by his younger sister from the future. Pokémon aside, young British kids don’t get too many opportunities to experience anime motion pictures, so this film is highly recommended!

Sunday Morning TV

Sunday Morning TV

The Gen Y members of the Deer Shed team all spent many a happy Sunday morning as kids sat in front of classic weekend TV. At Deer Shed 10, we want to share that experience with Gen Z, so we’ve put together a medley of all our all-time favourite Sunday morning cartoons. If the hustle and bustle of festival life gets a little too much at any time, this is the perfect place to relax.

Aesthetica Film Festival

Aesthetica Film Festival

The Aesthetica Short Film Festival is a leading BAFTA-Recognised festival that takes place annually in November in York, UK. It's a hotbed for fresh ideas and talent discovery and a destination to experience the power and craft of cinema, and is led by the same creators of this gorgeously glossy art, design and photography magazine. We’ve teamed up with Aesthetica for a second year to screen the best family friendly flicks from the local film festival at Deer Shed 10.
