Coming to Northampton Filmhouse in May, Northampton Film Festival 2023’s line up is the biggest ever for the festival, including films from Northamptonshire and across Great Britain, with many having won multiple awards at other film festivals around the world.

Festival Director Becky Carrier says, “It’s the first year we’ve opened the entries up to the whole of Great Britain and we have not been disappointed! It’s also the first year we’ve accepted feature length films and it’s great that we’re able to show off award-winning feature films from Northampton as well as unique and highly entertaining documentaries and dramas from across the country. We’ve excited to showcase more local talent and feel really honoured that some highly celebrated filmmakers have chosen to enter their film into Northampton Film Festival.”
