Keswick Film Festival

This production ended on 01/03/2020


Daffodils? Snowdrops? No, the first sign of spring in the Lakes is the Keswick Film Festival, which will take place at the gloriously restored Alhambra Cinema, Theatre by the Lake and at nearby Rheged for its 21st year.

As ever, we will bring you a programme of the best of world and independent cinema – winners and highlights from the world’s most prestigious festivals alongside premieres and pre-releases. There is the chance that we might screen the odd
classic or two and we are expecting some very special guests for this auspicious anniversary.

Just because the Festival is turning 21, it doesn’t mean we have to be all grown up!

There will be a focus on youth too, with the Osprey Short film Awards and the Patron’s Legacy Project (our ongoing tribute to Sir John Hurt) offering an early insight into the talent of tomorrow’s filmmakers, artists and designers.

Don’t take our word for it – this is what the 2019 audience said they liked:

‘A great mix of interesting films and friendly people to discuss them with!’

‘The friendliness of the Volunteers and the atmosphere’
