About

Newlyn and Penzance are a unique location at the extreme southwest of the British Isles, with a long tradition of Fishing and Visual Arts. The Newlyn International Film Festival was founded in 2017 by Redcliffe Films, Bristol (Diana Taylor and Anthea Page) and the inaugural event was   held in April 6-8th 2018 at the The Centre, Newlyn.

We showed a selection from 126 submitted films in a screening  across the course of the weekend and 4 awards were presented during the final evening’s ceremony and social event to the winning filmmakers, along with $800 in prize money.  Due to an enthusiastic response, we are announcing the second iteration of the Festival for April 2019 at the Acorn in Penzance.
