Bolton Film Festival

Tuesday, 02 October 2018 until Thursday, 04 October 2018

Bolton Film Festival returns to the Light Cinema complex within the Market Place, Bolton - a nine screen cinema in a listed Victorian building that has undergone a twenty seven million pound refurbishment.

We're seeking out innovative and groundbreaking short films from independent film-makers. Whether it’s drama, documentary, animation, comedy or experimental our aim is to showcase emerging talent to an audience of like-minded individuals and industry experts.

With multiple state of the art screens available at The Light Cinema complex the festival will be offering lots of screen time, this means your films have a much better chance than other smaller festivals of being selected. We only screen on DCP using the latest projectors. We believe your film should be shown at it's highest quality, what is the point of shooting on a high format camera if your film isn't shown at its best ? If you don't have a DCP don't worry we will make you one free of charge.
