Keswick Film Festival and Film Club
KESWICK FILM FESTIVAL
The 14th Film Festival is almost upon us.
It starts as usual with the Party for pass-holders with great food from our generous restaurants. We have lots of guests again this year.
John Hurt and Anwen Rees-Myers will be back and will be at the party, giving the prizes at the Osprey short film awards, introducing films on Saturday evening and on Sunday.
On Sunday we have the new film made by Anwen and Tony Britten about Benjamin Britten. Don Boyd will be introducing Derek Jarman’s War Requiem and there will be In Conversation with Tony and Don about music and film.
There’s over 30 films this year and it looks like a great programme. Find out more on www.keswickfilmfestival.org
KESWICK FILM CLUB
Keswick Film Club also shows films regularly at the Keswick Alhambra throughout the year.
It was formed in December 1988, and produced its first short season of 10 films in the period February-April 1999. Based at the Alhambra Cinema in St John's Street, the Club is run by a group of enthusiasts who try to bring to the people of Keswick and the surrounding area the best of British and World cinema: high quality, thought-provoking films which are often not given a screening in the local cinemas.
The Film Club runs its season of films from late September through to Easter, usually at 5pm on a Sunday evening at the Alhambra. In 2000 the Film Club organised the First Keswick Film Festival in association with the town's Theatre By The Lake and due to its success the festival has been run every year since.
