Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival

International Film and Media Arts Film Festival.


The Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival is a celebration of world-class contemporary film and art, set in a number of unique locations reflecting the rich historical and architectural heritage of England’s most northerly town. Our philosophy is distinctive, in that it draws together the work of both mainstream and independent filmmakers, together with artist film and video practitioners. Since 2005 we have shown the work of over 200 filmmakers and artists, which has included over 20 UK and European premiers and a number of works and installations that have shown outside of London for the first time. 

The Festival programme consists of film premieres from the international festival circuit, rarely seen retrospectives, live events, and the ‘artists trail,’ an exhibition of contemporary installations and projections in heritage locations around the Town Walls.


Entries under 60min are eligible for the Berwick New Cinema Award and a £1000 prize.
