One of the most talked about films of the year and a hit with Watershed audiences, we've brought back by popular demand Sebastian Schipper's extraordinary heist thriller that is - incredibly, audaciously - shot at night on the streets of Berlin in a single continuous take.

But it's so much more than a gimmick. It pulls you into a heart-stopping journey into the depths of the night, where Victoria (Laia Costa), a young woman from Madrid, meets four local guys outside a nightclub. Sonne (Frederick Lau) and his friends promise to show her a good time, but these boys have got themselves into hot water: they owe someone a dangerous favour that needs repaying that evening, and Victoria finds herself forced into taking part in a crime.

From drug-fuelled raves to rooftop parties, bullet-strewn set pieces and tense getaways, Victoria is a thrillride of a film that, unsurprisingly, picked up the Silver Bear for Cinematography at Berlin for its totally unfaked, uninterrupted take. It's a heart-stopping experience - and the actors have given it their all. Join us for a hefty, sweaty shot of adrenaline into the night...
