Newlyn is 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 will be held in April 6-8th 2018 at the The Centre, Newlyn. We intend to show submitted films in a screening selection across the course of the weekend and 4 awards will be presented during the final evening’s ceremony and social event to the winning filmmakers, along with $800 in prize money. Depending on the response, there is great potential in future iterations of the event.
