The Newlyn International Film Festival was established in 2018 in Newlyn. With a 128 entries from all over the world and a good attendance by film directors , the event was highly successful.
The festival in 2019 will be a three day event at the Acorn Theatre in Penzance April 5th -7th.
The 2019 NIFF promises to be a much bigger event with workshops , talks, screenings , a festival party and an award ceremony. The judges are highly respected practitioners in their field. The festival is now open for submissions and we are calling on all filmmakers to submit their films.
The festival is focused on all those who love independent film. The quality of the films last year was superb. As we are keen to promote Cornish film makers, we will have a special screening for this category. The fee for entering the festival is small and the prizes will be specially designed etched trophies and certificates.
