2019 Festival

28 Feb - 3 Mar 2019

Welcome to the 20th Keswick Film Festival

Come and join us for the 20th running of the Keswick Film Festival!

We asked our 2018 audience what they would like to see at this fantastic anniversary and they said 'more of the same please!' So expect a programme of films that will make you laugh, make you cry make you angry and make you wonder.

We have the latest films from some of our favourite directors such as László Nemes (Son of Saul) and Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman). Our great friend Carl Hunter (Grow Your Own) brings his first feature film with Sometimes Always Never and Peter Farrelly (yes – that Peter Farrelly) has produced an absolute gem with Green Book.

We can look forward to seeing famous faces and new faces, both on screen and off - all within the magnificent setting of the English Lake District.
