Yeah, it may be raining and miserable outside, but it’ll take more than that to stop El Vez and I heading off for our annual Cinema Tent screenings with OFVM at the Reading and Leeds music festivals.

If you’re a regular here you’ll no doubt recognise some of the films and kick ass directors in our thank you list below, but even you loyal folks should find a few new gems to check out amongst the past favourites.

If you’re at Reading or Leeds this weekend click on the posters for timings and be sure to shout @kung_fuelvis or @MarBelle on twitter if a desire to drink beer and chat films catches you (we’ll be at Reading as usual).

I’ve started to feel bad about flaunting such a great programme of films in front of our non-UK, non-festival going friends, so just for you, here’s a trailer for this year’s screening. Enjoy and let us know your favourite films in the comments.
