Newlyn International Film Festival returns for its second year

The ‘Newlyn International Film Festival’ was founded in 2017 by ‘Redcliffe Films’. The inaugural event was held in April 2018 at the The Centre, Newlyn.
Last year’s festival screened a selection from 126 submitted films across the course of the weekend and four awards were presented during the final evening’s ceremony and social event to the winning filmmakers. Due to an enthusiastic response a second iteration of the Festival has been announced. It will run during the weekend of Friday 5th – Sunday 7th of April 2019 at the The Acorn Theatre, Penzance.
The festival is truly a celebration of film, created for filmmakers and those who simply love film. It is about more than just watching films, with attendees able to enjoy a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere in which they can network with other film makers and film lovers and have discussions between screenings “The mission of the Newlyn Film Festival is to raise the profile of filmmaking within the South West and to support local filmmakers through networks and recognition. Newlyn and West Penwith form a unique environment for filmmakers, both in terms of locations and local talent and creativity. The varied festival programme aims to encourage filmmakers from all backgrounds as well as attracting new audiences to short film. We aim to cover the full possibilities of creative filmmaking through the range of award categories and careful scheduling of each screening session. Encouraging networking for all attendees.”
