2018 Festival

Passes and tickets are now available from the Theatre By The Lake

Keswick Film Festival 2018 promises to be an exciting blend of new and familiar faces, some in exotic places others in some rather dark places, from where some of the best movies emerge. We have award winners galore – from Berlin, Cannes, Toronto and more - striking documentaries (including Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group's choice) and many films that you may only ever get to see by coming to the festival.

Add to this our very own Osprey Awards and some rather special guests and Keswick will be the place to be this February...as always!



2017 Festival

Revisit the 2017 festival, where we were joined by Greta Scachhi and held the first Critics' Award with Matt Glasby, Karen Krizanovich and Ali Catterall. Life, Animated, We Are Many and Paths of the Soul were the highest rated documentaries. Loving was voted the best dramatic film, with Manchester by the Sea and Tanna not far behind.
