A new short film festival comes to historic Newlyn, based in the extreme South West.
The festival features short fiction and documentary with special categories for poetry and students. The judges are well known across the region, both as practitioners and academics.
Newlyn has been chosen as a place with a long tradition in the visual arts, made famous by the Newlyn School of Painters, which included Stanhope Forbes, Walter Langley and Norman Garstin, who were attracted by the extraordinary light and the potential to document a whole community, centred around the fishing industry.
The town is a picturesque and creative hub and the perfect location for a long weekend, seeing exceptional work from around the globe in a setting famous for narrative and documentary painting.
