Chapter is delighted to welcome back Cardiff Independent Film Festival from April 22 to 24 for the third annual celebration of indie and world cinema.

This year’s festival has a focus on animation and special guests include Aardman’s Nick Lord and Chapter tenant and Oscar nominee Joanna Quinn.

Elsewhere in the cinema programme, there’s a heavy focus on the very best new home-grown releases, including Ben Wheatley’s High Rise (April 1 to 7), the first Welsh language horror feature, Yr Ymadawiad (The Passing, April 8 to 14), and Porthcawl director Jamie Adams’ latest modern romance, set in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, Black Mountain Poets (April 1 to 7).

Chapter’s Seligman Theatre will host biting romantic comedy Fear of Drowning (April 19 to 23), a timely play about commitment, tribalism and the end of the world by new Welsh group Black Sheep Theatre Company, and Theatr Iolo present Made in China’s disarmingly honest and comically imagined love story Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me (April 8 and 9).

In Chapter Gallery there’s plenty of time to catch Rose Wylie’s critically acclaimed Tilt The Horizontal Into A Slant (until Sunday May 29).

You can learn more about the exhibition from one of our gallery assistants on Saturdays at 4pm – on April 2, 16 and 30 in English and April 23 in Welsh.
