22nd Keswick Film Festival 2021 2022
24 -27 March 2022

Keswick's Annual Film Festival returns to the town in March 2022, appropriately on the weekend of the Oscars.

Having missed a year for the first time in the century, the Festival will bring its programme of the best of independent and world cinema to the Alhambra, the Theatre by the Lake and to Rheged.

The Festival will have a new look after the changes brought during the pandemic. The Alhambra will be at its refurbished best, with a second screen able to show some niche events and for the first time, the Festival will be using both of the screens at Rheged.

We are now working hard on the film programme and ticketing arrangements and as ever, we are hoping to bring some special guests to the town. To make sure you don't miss out sign up to our email newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

We were fortunate that the 21st Keswick Film Festival went ahead before COVID-19 took over and prevented many other film festivals from happening.
