Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is an international celebration of the art of film.
With ambitious programming including film premieres, moving image installations and live performance, the annual Festival spans 12 locations across its walled, border-town home of Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Established in 2005, the Festival is an Arts Council England National Portfolio organisation.
Inaugurated with the vision to forever enrich lives through the power of film, BFMAF develops new territories in which to flex our emotional and intellectual muscles. Commissioning and exhibiting filmmakers and visual artists’ work, initiating collaboration and providing a resource to local communities, BFMAF is a festival sans frontières.
"A town like Berwick, with its independent, edge of England mindset, is a good place for a festival that eschews the easy route when the awkward one looks so much more interesting." Chris Sharratt, A-N news, September 2015
