Two vastly different films will top and tail the Keswick Film Festival programme for 2023.

We are opening with Godland, an epic in every sense. A Lutheran priest travels across Iceland in order to set up a new church. Towering landscapes are the backdrop to human frailties. Wendy Ide called it "An engrossing account of a voyage to the dark side of permanent daylight".

Our closing film will be the latest from KFF favourite Kore-eda Hirokazu, Broker. Starring Parasite's Song Kang-ho, the film explores Kore-eda's theme of found families and critics rate it as one of his best films ever - which is quite saying something.

Incidentally, between those two, we have a brace of films starring Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread). More Than Ever and Corsage show this wonderful actor's range to best effect - KFF 2023 is shaping up to be a good one!

We are currently putting together the final touches to the programme and tickets and passes will be on sale from January.
