Each year we hold a world-renowned film competition with hundreds of entrants from across the globe. Our team carefully watch every entry and whittle these down to a varied programme of 200 films, which we screen in an insightfully curated and jam-packed programme at various Festival venues each November.
The films are then viewed by our panel of judges who select the award winners, and we present our prestigious 'Kendal' awards at a lively ceremony on Saturday night in the Basecamp. Our Festival audience are also invited to nominate their favourite film to win the 'People's Choice Award'.
We're proud to have platformed thousands of films to new audiences and given in excess of £50,000 in prize money to budding film-makers over the years!
