16th Keswick Film Festival
Thursday 26th February to Sunday 1st March 2015
Things are shaping up for the fantastic 16th Festival. We will open with "the best film to come out of New Zealand for over 20 years" on Thursday at the Alhambra with free drinks for all.
Then we have films fitting this year's themes of disABILITY, On Yer Bike, and A Celebration of Dogme. The films at Rheged are going to really exploit the big screen this year and the KP&HR Group have selected the themes of North Korea and UK Poverty for their films with speakers.
We've found a great collection of Best of the Fests this year, there's a free family film and some late night horror! And then there are the great guests.
So if you've been before I'm sure you will be coming back for more. If you haven't been before - give us a try but watch out, people have such a good time at the "friendly festival" they keep coming back time and time again!
