15th Keswick Film Festival
27th February - 2nd March 2014
The Centenary Celebrations of the Alhambra will continue until the 6th
We are delighted to announce the dates of the next Festival and once again we will be using the Alhambra Cinema, the Theatre by the Lake and Rheged IMAX. As usual there will be the Opening Party for pass holders on Thursday night followed by a great new film Felix starring Dame Janet Suzman who will be here for most of the Festival. From Friday right through to the following Thursday Tom at the Alhambra celebrates their Centenary by showing films from each decade so book in to Keswick for a great week of film.
We are waiting to hear if our patron John Hurt will be here again and already we have other great guests. As well as Dame Janet we will be welcoming Charlie Cattrall with his first film Titus which has just been nominated for 2 BIFA awards including Best Debut Director and Adam Dawtrey, journalist and producer of A Story of Children and Film to talk about the film.
We will be starting to announce the films in our themes, Bangladeshi Arthouse, Cannes in Keswick, Best of the Fests, the films and speakers in partnership with Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group and the retrospective.
We are also extending our Osprey Awards to include the other 3 counties on the border of Scotland, so Northumberland, the Borders and Dumfries and Galloway as well as Cumbria. And we hope to have a new venue in the town to focus on Shorts where people can drop in and out.
