Over 30 films are shown at the Keswick Film Festival.

Our guest list is now on the website and it makes for a line-up that is perfect for the 20th Keswick Film Festival.

Carl Hunter is an old friend of the Festival. He co-wrote (with Frank Cottrell Boyce) Grow Your Own which was a sell out in 2008. We screened it again for our 10th Anniversary when Carl and Frank made the short film, Accelerate, to mark the occasion. Carl also chaired the judging panel for the Osprey short film competition.

Sometimes Always Never is Carl’s first feature film as director, which comes with a tremendous pedigree both in front of and behind the camera. The gala night on Saturday 2nd March will be memorable.

James Gardner’sJellyfish has been scooping up awards wherever it is screened. James will be introducing the film at our opening night and will be able to give us an insight into working with the amazing young talent that is Liv Hill who plays Sarah.

Mike Tweddle, a master of making dramatic films with ridiculously small budgets, bringsSparrowhawk to Keswick after impressing the Film Club audience with his earlier film, Damaged Goods; Norma Marcos brings her unique insight into the middle east conflict with A Long Hot Summer in Palestine, one of two Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group screenings and Neil Sinyard returns, bringing with him a rare chance to see William Wyler’s documentary on The Memphis Belle.

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