The Newlyn PZ International Film Festival is now in its third year – founded in 2017 by Diana Taylor and Anthea Page who are established film directors. See the 2020 Festival programme  https://newlynfilmfestival.com/programme-2020/

The selected feature films will be given a priority screening slot. The Film Festival is truly a celebration of film, created and curated with the filmmakers in mind. Our festival is about more than just watching films, and we will create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all attendees to enjoy and discuss between screenings in comfortable and relaxed environments.

Much of the value we offer comes from attending and enjoying the event, networking with the other filmmakers, and assessing the audience reactions to your film. We look forward to welcoming you to the 2020 event.
