Selected from the UK’s major film festivals, a new film is screened each quarter and accompanied by a Q&A from the filmmakers involved. NBCQ showcases and celebrates Britain’s film craft, providing opportunities for audiences around the UK to discover new films and hear directly from the talent behind the camera.
