Sorry, but Keswick Film Festival is either started or over at Alhambra - Keswick.


Back for its 19th year, this annual celebration of cinema brings you the very best films from the world’s greatest festivals – as well as some very special guests – and all in the stunning surrounds of one of the most beautiful places on Earth. When the view is as good outside as it is on screen, it’s not hard to see why this festival is getting a burgeoning reputation with so many people flocking to attend year on year. Our team have hand-picked each film to feature in our programme of movies from around the world. This year’s highlights will include The Square, Edie, A Fantastic Woman, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and Ai Weiwei’s remarkable documentary, Human Flow. Our short film competition, The Ospreys, will have more submissions to surprise and delight you, perhaps showcasing a first glimpse of tomorrow’s filmmakers. Venues will include Theatre by the Lake, Keswick’s Alhambra Cinema and Rheged’s huge Imax screen. Don’t just take our word for it! This is what our audience said last year: ‘An outstanding choice of films and a very friendly atmosphere’ ‘Everyone really friendly, great time indulging a passion for film within a gorgeous location and plenty to explore’ For further details as the festival draws closer, visit where you can also register to receive regular email updates.
