2019 Festival

28 Feb - 3 Mar 2019

Welcome to the 20th Keswick Film Festival

The Festival is nearly upon us and the excitement is building.

As we have talked to people and watched your comments appear on social media it is apparent that whilst there are a few stand out favourites in the programme, such as Jellyfish, Green Book and Sometimes, Always Never, the range of films on offer means that there will be a special moment for everybody who attends.

The Rheged films, Down to Earth and Sorry to Bother You are so different but are on so many people's must-see list. The Guilty also features on that list and now we have Prevenge to factor in as well. I am so looking forward to welcoming Alice Lowe to the Festival.

Do not miss the Ospreys! This year's crop of short films looks amazing, with some serious messages coming through from young activists working in their communities.

Oh, and did I mention Asghar Farhadi's Everybody Knows?

See you very soon
