We think Northampton is a place of Rebels and Revolutionaries, Misfits and Mavericks, Creatives and Changemakers. If you can get on board with that, we’re always looking for new volunteers so get in touch.

We’ve had some amazing judges at Northampton Film Festival since 2019. From the infamous Northampton writer Alan Moore to Is There Anybody Out There? Director Ella Glendining and Northampton-born Knives Out Producer Leopold Hughes. Read about them here.
