Films

Two vastly different films will top and tail the Keswick Film Festival programme for 2023.

We are opening with Godland, an epic in every sense. A Lutheran priest travels across Iceland in order to set up a new church. Towering landscapes are the backdrop to human frailties. Wendy Ide called it "An engrossing account of a voyage to the dark side of permanent daylight".

Our closing film will be the latest from KFF favourite Kore-eda Hirokazu, Broker. Starring Parasite's Song Kang-ho, the film explores Kore-eda's theme of found families and critics rate it as one of his best films ever - which is quite saying something.

Here are the films showing at the 23rd Keswick Film Festival:
