Norwich Film Festival

About Us

The Norwich Film Festival was recently chosen by The Metro as one of "the top UK film festivals you need to know about", and in 2017 became a BIFA (British Independent Film Awards) qualifying short film festival. We have been running since 2009 and over the years we have hosted over 75 events and screened over 600 films to the public.

The Norwich Film Festival has an amazing array of celebrity patrons including Stephen Fry, Tim McInnerny, Olivia Colman, Julian Jarrold, Brian Cox & John Collee. The Festival is also dedicated to sending Nominated Films to industry judges to help decide on who should win. Our 2019 Judges will be announced throughout the year. However, previous judges have included: Alfred Molina, Emma Freud, Bernard Hill, Roger Michell, Mark Everson, Andrea Gibb, Denise Parkinson and so many more wonderful people.

As well as screening the selected films to the public, the winning films will also receive an award, a certificate, a cash prize of £1,000, and a selection of other industry related prizes. Our social media gained well over 2.5 million impressions on Twitter alone last year, and we will promote your film to a global audience.
