The 5th Holmfirth Film Festival built on the success of the last four years with an exciting programme of over sixty screenings, quirky venues throughout the area, innovative events, major talks on film and many opportunities to see award-winning films and documentaries from around the world, and the very best of British independent films from the previous year.
This year we were also part of the Cultural Festival running up to the Tour De France in July and the programme includeded a series of cycling films and the latest films from France. During the Tour weekend we screened a special collection of films in the centre of Holmfirth.
This volunteer run community festival brings to the Holme Valley the cream of world cinema. It seeks to tap into and encourage the creative potential of the area with film-making, workshops and competitions for young people. If you would like to help with the Festival in 2015 please do get in touch.
Before Summer Wine – before Hollywood even – Holmfirth was famous for film-making. A century on, we celebrate the best of short, northern and international films – bringing film back to the home of Bamforth and the Valley Theatre. But the Festival is now growing and is beginning to have a regional and Northern impact.
We are now putting together plans for the 6th Festiva (2015)l. This year turned out to be a rich one for lovers of film and we are confident that this will be the most successful Festival so far which will attract cinema-goers far and wide.
The 2015 festival programme will be available here from 1 April 2015.
