Cornwall Film Festival returns in 2018 for its 17th Edition with the theme Resistance, continuing its mission to present films that defy convention.
A hotbed for talent
Cornwall Film Festival is a hotbed for talent discovery and a key annual event for emerging filmmakers to meet alongside eminent personalities from the world of media.
The festival attracts passionate film audiences with an International film programme, masterclasses, speakers, director Q&A’s, as well as our own homegrown talent.
And it will be back in the heart of Falmouth, at The Poly -an arts institution that is a local hotspot and the perfect venue for an independent film festival.
There will be three full days of CFF fun: Friday, November 9, 2018 | Saturday, November 10, 2018 | and Sunday, November 11, 2018.
If you’ve got any ideas about what to see at the festival, get in touch with the CFF team!
