Ken Loach received the Special 30th Anniversary Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Cannes for his work

There will be a Q&A session with the Palme d’Or laureate, and two short films curated by Future Shorts - The Nautical Education by Christian Laurence and One Word for Cinema by Christoph Warrack - in addition to the main feature.

Loach’s later film: Its A Free World stars Kierston Wareing, Juliet Ellis and Leslaw Zurek. It tells the story of a driven young woman’s attempts to help new immigrants into work with a rookie recruitment agency lands her in a twilight zone between gangmasters, employment agencies and the migrant workers they place. As ever the director’s ability to draw resounding performances from his cast while going to the heart of contemporary crises is world class.

Ken Loach’s films were awarded many SIGNIS and Ecumenical prizes, and in 2004 the acclaimed director received the Special 30th Anniversary Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Cannes for his entire work. Its A Free World earned a SIGNIS Commendation at last year’s Venice film festival.
