Moon Festival

On the 20th July 49 years ago, Neil Armstrong stepped on to the Moon. A defining moment in history, that to this day leaves people aghast at the achievement.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary, The Sun presents: the Moon Film Festival, the 16th to 24th of July 2019, the same 9 days that Apollo XI embarked on her audacious mission. 

In the years before and since, the Moon has featured in stories of exploration, especially so in the movies. The Moon Film Festival, curated by Adventurer of the Year Michael Smith, will showcase a selection of favourite, obscure, short and even the “cheesy” films as late shows, that feature our beloved Moon. There will be screening events within the cinema to suit all ages.

“We choose to show films of the Moon, and do the other things, not because it is easy, but because it is hard” quipped Michael Smith, cheekily paraphrasing JFK’s speech, that launched the Voyage to the Moon.
