Diss Film Society at The Park Hotel on Monday is showing a double bill of British films introduced by local resident Graham Baker, director of Omen II and Alien Nation (8pm).

Leaving Lily, a filmic short story from 1975, was Baker's award-winning debut before he left for Hollywood. Set and shot in Norfolk with mainly local actors, it follows a young labourer and his lover as their village is caught up in nationalistic fervour at the start of the war in 1914. His enthusiasm to enlist is tempered by visions of the future.

Shane Meadows is one of our most impressive young directors and his most recent film, Somers Town, is a happy urban fantasy set around London's Eurostar terminal. Two teenagers, both newcomers to London, forge an unlikely friendship over the course of a hot summer.

Admission �4; members �3; students �2.
