Shakespeare Film Festival 2018

We will be back again in 2018 with our Film Festival and global short film competition.

In 2017 about 150 people joined us in Stratford-upon-Avon for a three day festival of Shakespeare on film. Our theme for 2017 was 'Crossing Borders'. Look out for our 2018 film festival on the theme of 'Reconciliation' - we will be running workshops and showing films outdoors at Shakespeare's New Place as well as screening the winners of our Filming Shakespeare short film competition. 

The winner of 2017 competition was Mona Zaidi with her excellent film Richard III - Unto the Kingdon of Perpetual Night

"In the end, for it’s wide range of creative ambitions in performance, cinematography, language and theme, and for the high quality of execution in all these areas, I congratulate the makers of Richard 111- Journey into perpetual night."

— Sir Kenneth Branagh, Patron
