Welcome to the 8th Film Festival...

...and a week of exciting events in the Holme Valley. A great year for film with blockbusters and Oscar winners of real quality. A big, strong selection of films and documentaries from around the world - and our first Outdoor Cinema on Saturday and Sunday with classics and music films.

The main theme is the 50th Anniversary of Psychedelia – coinciding with a big national exhibition by Pink Floyd – with a mind-bending programme of talks, cult films and music. We celebrate the success of black actors and films and feature films on disability.

All the favourites - Local, Food & Film, Kids Films, Cult, New, Revivals, Northern, afternoon black & white, in a string of venues across the Valley.

A celebration of film in one of the nicest areas of the UK. The First Film Festival of Summer.
