Critical Acclaim

We invited film critics, Matt Glasby, Karen Krizanovich and Ali Catterall to choose the best film they had seen in 2016 for screening at the Festival and asked them to make the case for their selection to win the Keswick Film Festival's Critics' Award. As professional reviewers they see dozens of films and for something to stand out means that it must be really special. Will their choices, Son of Saul, Arrival and Raw do it for you? Over the course of the Festival they will say just why they chose those films and on Sunday you will have the chance to hear them make their final pitch for your vote.

Whether you loved or loathed their choice please have your say.

Before the Festival we will be showing their all-time favourite films – Airplane!, If.... and Theatre of Blood - in an amazing triple bill at the Alhambra - and for those of you not able to get there, we will be inviting you to watch them at home and join in the conversation from there using #KeswickFilm.

The Debate

Sunday 19th 3pm - The Alhambra

Come and see Karen, Ali and Matt make their final pitch for your vote and hear how your fellow audience members reacted to their hugely different choices.

Were you challenged? entertained? scared? Did their recommendations make you see something that you would not otherwise have seen?

Whether you loved or loathed their choice please have your say.
