We are very proud of the fact that the New Forest District Council has chosen to include our festival as the competitive element of their nine-day film extravaganza, from the 8th to the 16th June 2019.

Events will be held across the New Forest region, celebrating the diverse locations available for filming there as well as screening classic and recent films at various cinemas and helping promote the film industry in the region. 

Another big part of the Film: New Forest event will be the fostering of links with the colleges and universities in the area to encourage new and young filmmakers to have a go and enter this festival... who knows where their careers might take off to from here?
