Chester International Film Festival 2017

The 2017 Chester International Film Festival has now concluded, please visit the festival website at to see what you missed.

We were delighted to present a diverse collection of some of the finer films of world cinema in a relaxing and appreciative atmosphere.

After it’s outstanding launch in 2014, we were pleased to host our Animation Festival alongside the 2017 Festival.  This was an open competition showing the best in international animations following a call for submissions.

For the 2017 festival, we had 270 entries submitted from 52 countries. Each night our audience voted on their favourites, and on the final night the highest 2 went head to head to win the Audience Award 2017.

The winner was LIGHT SIGHT. Congratulations!
