Film:New Forest announces Film Festival 2020

Our project to encourage filming in the area Film:New Forest, has announced that a New Forest Film Festival will take place next year (2020).

The decision follows the success of this year's recent Film Festival, a nine day celebration of films with a New Forest connection.

A total of 46 events were held across the district in 15 venues, and included the area's first ever ComicCon at Brockenhurst College,  quizzes with a movie theme, workshops, Q&As hosted by local film makers, and a short-film competition.

Cllr Michael Harris, Cabinet member at New Forest District Council has supported Film:New Forest since it started in 2016 and said of the Festival, "Over 3,000 people took part in one or more of the events during the festival.  As well as supporting the amazing local talent we have here, we estimate this activity brought with it a £15,000 boost to the New Forest economy."

New Forest Film Festival 2020 is likely to take place in September of that year.
