10th Keswick Film Festival

We are putting together our usual fantastic mix of pre-release films, the best of international cinema and we are continuing our music strand that went down so well with our FebFest audience in our 'small but perfectly formed' event at the Alhambra earlier this year. In February we are back to the usual format of film at the Alhambra, the Studio and the Main House at the Theatre.

Passes for the 10th Keswick Film Festival should be on sale from the 24th November at the pre-Christmas discounted rates of £35 (and £28 for KFC members). Tickets for students and unwaged are only £21 and this price does not go up after Christmas.

Bookings can be made online at the Theatre by the Lake website, by telephone at 017687 74411 or in person.

And of course we have great guests. Some are yet to confirm but we will be joined by Frank Cottrell Boyce, script-writer of many great films and TV and we hope to be screening a number of his films including a free showing of 'Millions' for kids (old and young), 'Hilary and Jackie' and 'Forget About Me'. Also Sol and Roy of Hurricane Films who we met at Under the Mud have since produced the well acclaimed Terence Davies film 'Of Time and the City'. They will be introducing that and we will screen a number of Terence Davies other films. Last year 'Grow Your Own' sold out and so Carl Hunter is coming back to show it again and do a Q&A for those who missed it.

Once again we are holding a short film competition and have started accepting entries for the Cumbrian Short Film Award 2009. Full details of the competition, including entry forms, can be found on the website.

And there's lots more that we don't want to reveal yet…
