Welcome to Keswick Film Club

Here are the highest rated films we screened in our 2023-2024 seasons at the film festival and club:


  • That's all for now, folks!

    25 April 2024

    And so our 25th Year comes to an end; we do hope you have enjoyed it! By the look of the votes most films seem to have gone down well, and more of you came to see them than last year so let's hope the Covid effect is wearing off; wouldn't it be great if next year sees our audiences reach the numbers they did before the pandemic!

    We would like to thank all those who helped run the films this year, both for the club nights and the festival; the committee decision to try to involve more people seems to have been popular and successful - thank you all very much! Watch this space over the summer for requests for help next season; there might be a few more jobs for you to enjoy!

    All that remains for us to do is to wish you all a great summer and to say we will be back in September (probably Sunday 8 September), and to remind you that it will be the Festival's 25th Birthday next year - Ian Payne, the Festival Director,  has some great ideas to hep us celebrate! Put the dates in your diary now - 25th Keswick Film Festival - Thursday 6 March to Sunday 9 March

  • More Films...

    25 March 2024

    The End We Start From was originally going to be our last film before our long summer break but we now have two more films for you. We have decided that the Festival Favourite - 'Totem' deserves to be seen by more people than got to see it at the festival and so we will be showing it on TUESDAY 16 APRIL AT 7.30pm

    On SUNDAY 21st April at 5.00pm we will be showing 'Lost in the Stars', the Chinese thriller that went wrong on 4 February. More details will follow soon - but put them in your diary now!
  • The End We Start From - Sunday 24th March 5pm

    18 March 2024

    In The End We Start From Jodie Comer stars as a woman who gives birth just as terrible floods hit London; new life begins as the old life ends. The film continues to emphasise the individuals' problems rather than the bigger picture, focusing on our unnamed hero trying to survive as food gets harder to find. She first escapes from London up North with her partner, then tries to reach a commune with a new-found friend, all the while having to fend for her baby.

    "Comer’s vulnerability and idealism are authentic as are her determination and a dash of real ruthlessness... She carries everything with unselfconscious strength and style." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

  • Shayda - Sunday 17th March 5pm

    11 March 2024

    Shayda tells the story of the titular character's attempt to escape her abusive husband's clutches. This is director Noora Niasari's confident personal debut , which won an Audience Award at Sundance for the World Dramatic Competition program.

    "One of the most masterful debuts of a filmmaker that I've seen in a long time." - Claudia Puig, FilmWeek
