Programme

NFF 2023 finished in June but you can view the events we did run and pop up events throughout the year here. While we’re mainly planning at the moment, there’s still lots of ways to get involved – if you are a young person interested in learning about Film or Cinema 10-18yrs or an adult interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you.
