SFSonline: The Perfect Candidate

The Perfect Candidate is our first offering in the #AccessCinemaAtHome programme, a new initiative from our screening partner access > CINEMA bringing new or recent films to watch at home.

Haifaa Al Mansour, the trailblazing director of Wadjda, brings you the story of a young female Saudi doctor challenging her local community and their ways of thinking.

We invite our audience with the means to rent the film and stream at home at our usual Thursday 8pm slot starting tomorrow. Let us know you’re watchng by using the hashtag #SFSonline. Link to rent below and by doing so you will continue to support SFS by choosing Sligo Film Society from the drop down menu while purchasing. We will receive a percentage of the rental fee. The film is valid for home streaming for a period of 48 hours.
