FRIDAY 23 TO FRIDAY 30 MAY 2014
The 5th Holmfirth Film Festival will build 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 more 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 will be part of the Cultural Festival running up to the Tour De France in July and the programme will include a series of cycling films and the latest films from France. During the Tour weekend we will be screening 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 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 currently putting together the final plans for the Festival. This year has 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 festival programme will be available here from 1 April 2014.
