British Arrows 2019

The uniquely creative “adverts” of British TV continue to dazzle and delight; they’re annually recognized with the prestigious British Arrows awards (formerly the British Television Advertising Awards), and the winners are assembled into a feature-length program that’s become a cult favorite in cinemas worldwide.

The compact storytelling that’s possible in films of only a minute or two provides endless surprise, yet the particular inventiveness, playfulness and power of these British advertisements, all designed to deliver a message in an unexpected way, provide a marvelously satisfying kick.

A December phenomenon for years at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis (where more than 20,000 attend), the DFT screenings of the British Arrows are a welcome cause for celebration over the holidays. (approx. 80 min.)
