FROM a series of innovative short films to a screening of a film from the country of Lebanon, arthouse connoisseurs are in for a treat this week.

Today, Ventnor Arts Club's Italian week concludes with a quiz and a supper ­— an evening to test the knowledge of those Italian film afficionados.

On Sunday, The Piano Cafe is hosting the first of two short film nights at 7.45pm.

14 innovative short films will be screened over the course of 1hr and 45mins ­— independently made and direct from the film makers.

The films are from a number different genres, and range from narrative, music videos and animation to motion graphics and illustrations.

On Monday and Wednesday, Ventnor Film Society is screening Capernaum (15) at 7.30pm.

Capernaum ­— or Chaos, in English ­— tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the 'crime' of giving him life.

On Tuesday, Ventnor Arts Club is screening The Keeper (15) at 7.30pm.

Starring David Kross, the film tells the true story of a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of goalkeeper at Manchester City.

His signing causes outrage to thousands of Man City fans, many of them Jewish, but Bert's lover, Margaret, wins support from an unexpected direction.

On Thursday, Ventnor Art Club is screening a live satellite broadcast of the musical comedy, One Man, Two Guvnors, at 7pm.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit, returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

In the British seaside town of Brighton, Francis Henshall has just been fired from his skiffle band.

Despondent and desperate for fish and chips, Henshall ends up in the employ of Roscoe Crabbe, a small-time hood from London's East End.
