Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival

Thursday, 07 March 2024 until Sunday, 10 March 2024

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.


Selected submissions for this year’s edition will be considered for the 2024 Berwick New Cinema Award as well as site-specific exhibitions in Berwick-upon-Tweed during the Festival.

The Berwick New Cinema Awards encompasses the festival’s view of the most distinctive works of new cinema being made around the world today.

All selected filmmakers receive an award rather than a single winner chosen by a jury.
