Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival
September 20 - September 24
Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is one of the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image. BFMAF supports fresh artistic voices to develop and attracts audiences hungry for complex and challenging art. Recognised for its innovative programme and critical engagement, BFMAF presents artists’ and filmmakers’ work in the cinema as well as exhibition, installation and performance.
“Berwick shows how art remains vital to public debate and the tattered public sphere […] it demonstrates the way in which a small community with real intent can educate, provoke and resist.” (John Douglas Millar, Art Monthly)
13th EDITION: Taking place in historic venues across England’s most northerly town, BFMAF 2017 will include exhibitions, film screenings and live events, as well as a young filmmakers’ award, school screenings and family activities. The Festival hosts the Berwick New Cinema competition, an annual prize for the very best in artists’ moving image and new filmmaking.
