Hebden Bridge Film Festival is joining with the historic and beautifully restored Hebden Bridge Picture House and Hebden Bridge Town Hall to establish the area’s first international film festival, over the weekend of 22nd to 24th March 2019.
With over 500 years of non-conformism in the Calder Valley the theme for HBFF this year is "The Other". It will be a celebration of films by or about those who “dare to be different”, whether they exist in the margins, sit outside the mainstream or just plain don’t fit in.
Hebden Bridge Film Festival (HBFF) is delighted that actress Maxine Peake is their new patron.
The Festival presents a dazzling programme of world cinema, UK and US independent film, as well as well as supporting and fostering new talent. The programme so far includes:
Wild Rose, including a new short film directed by Festival Patron Maxine Peake who will take part in a Q&A. (Friday 22 March)
Carmen and Lola, including Skype Q&A with director Arantxa Echevarría. (Saturday 23 March)
Being Frank, including Q&A with director Steve Sullivan. (Saturday 23 March)
Lane 0: The Lane of Dreams - Examining the struggle of a group of swimmers from developing nations trying to qualify for the Olympic Games for the first time. (Saturday 23 March)
The Last Goldfish – A daughter's search for her lost family stretches from Australia to Trinidad and WWII Germany. (Saturday 23 March)
Eighth Grade, the recent winner at the Independent Spirit Awards 2019. (Sunday 24 March)
The Fight, including Q&A with director and star Jessica Hynes. (Sunday 24 March)
