Keswick Film Festival and Film Club
KESWICK FILM FESTIVAL
27th February - 2nd March 2014
The 15th Film Festival is almost upon us and this year it will be better than ever as it is the 100th anniversary of the Alhambra Cinema.
We are putting the programme together now and already are delighted to announce that Dame Janet Suzman will be here from Thursday to Saturday and will be showing a number of her films. We will be having other guests, and also hope that John Hurt and Anwen will be with us again. Because it is the anniversary of the Alhambra there will be free films from each decade running through the Festival and on until Thursday so why not stay for longer. This year’s themes include Cannes in Keswick, a number of the winners from that Festival. We have films at the IMAX again on Saturday and the opening party on the Thursday night for Pass holders.
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 expect to have a new venue in the town to focus on Shorts where people can drop in and out.

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.
