Your Memories of Keswick Film Festival

We would like to hear your memories from previous Festivals so that we can collate them and show just why this fabulous event has endured.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be posing a number of questions but I’d like to start by asking for your favourite introduction or Q&A by one of our Festival guests. Moments such as those are the essential difference between 'going to a Festival' and 'going to the pictures'.

I have two such stand out moments. Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Q&A after the screening of Millions at the 2009 Festival and Greta Scacchi’s birthday quiz after White Mischief in 2017.

We were all charmed by Millions but then Frank’s interaction with the children in the audience was magical; and for Greta to devise a quiz during the screening of White Mischief and offer slices of her birthday cake as prizes made it a truly memorable night.

But there have been so many such occasions – we’d love you to post your memories on our Facebook page, by commenting on this blog post or contacting us in the usual way.

If your memory needs a jog, have a look at our archive pages on the website
