1948 Academy Award winner ‘The Red Shoes’ is the classic tale of a young ballerina torn between her art and her romance with a young composer. Created by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, it is the quintessential backstage drama and dance film, as well as one of the most glorious Technicolor feasts ever created. The beloved classic has been restored for new generations to experience and lives on as an enthralling tribute to the life of the artist and a milestone work of British cinema.

In partnership with the British Council and Qatar Museums Authority to celebrate Qatar UK 2013, Doha Film Institute presents the DFI UK Cinema Showcase - a series of monthly screenings throughout 2013 celebrating the power of classic and contemporary films from the British canon. Featuring unforgettable works from heavyweight directors and contemporary masters including David Lean, Ken Loach and Danny Boyle, the programme will present a stellar line up of films across multiple genres. Launching on February 28th with the 1948 masterpiece and Academy-Award winner, 'The Red Shoes', screenings will take place on the last weekend of each month at the MIA Auditorium.
