Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival



Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image. Join us for the 15th edition of BFMAF this September for films, free exhibitions & events, performances, talks and activities for Children and Families.

This year’s festival features a retrospective of pivotal Ukrainian filmmaker Kira Muratova; a profile of Lebanese moving image artist Marwa Arsanios; the wide-ranging series Animistic Apparatus focusing on Southeast Asian moving image artists’ explorations of human entanglement with nonhuman beings and larger-than-human worlds; Fantastika, a curated series on fairytale, folktale and fable in international cinema from the 1960s to the present; and the UK premiere of Carlos Casas’ distinctive and award-winning feature film Cemetery as the opening film to BFMAF 2019.
