International Film Competition

At the heart of our Festival is the international film competition, which awards 11 film prizes through an independent jury.

The Winners 2015

For 2015 our Film Jury included Steve Robinson, Wahajat Malik, Amanda Lu, Hazel Findlay, Ella Kirkpatrick  and is chaired by Keme Nzerem.

The film competition sees over 200 films submitted each year, which was shortlisted to around 78 with inclusion decided on merit and quality. Films are screened in 10 venues across Kendal with last year’s totalling 422 screenings over 73 film sessions.

We attract many film premières (World, European or national) every year - the Festival is acknowledged by filmmakers as the foremost opportunity to showcase their latest films and many plan their production schedule for the year around the event.
