There's still lots to see on our final day, including the award winning Green Book, a preview of "one of the best movies ever made about survival" Arctic and the UK premiere of A Long Hot Summer in Palestine with director Norma Marcos.

Sunday's Studio Films

Due to popular demand we have moved Sunday's films scheduled for the Studio to the Main House. This means there are now more tickets available for A Long Hot Summer In Palestine, Nae Pasaran and The Memphis Belle.

Today's films (CitizenFour, Prevenge and Faces Places) will still be in the Studio.

Saturday at Keswick Film Festival

Today we have long films (4 hours) and short films (2 mins) and plenty in between the two. We're also delighted to be joined by special guests Alice Lowe and director Carl Hunter for our Gala Screening of Sometimes Always Never.

For the first full day of the Festival there are 11 films to choose from, including two UK premieres and six other films that have yet to be released. Students from Carlisle College and the University of Cumbria are taking over the Theatre Studio to present a new project POPCORN as a tribute to the legacy of our former Patron, Sir John Hurt.
