flags16Welcome to The 2017 Chester International Film Festival, our 31st!

Our festival is now in preparation.  We will update this site shortly.

In 2016 we were delighted to present this diverse collection of some of the finer films of world cinema in a relaxing and appreciative atmosphere.  We presented the film talent of 17 countries!

After it’s outstanding launch in 2014, we were pleased to again host our Animation Festival alongside this year’s Festival.  We showed the best in international animations following a call for submissions. For this year’s festival, we had over 120 entries submitted from all over the world.  We are now accepting entries for the 2017 programme.

The audience prize for 2016 went to Team Print Your Guy, with their film PRINT YOUR GUY. Well done!

The festival was organised by Chester Film Society. We are Chester’s only permanent film offering in the city. If you are interested in future film events, please visit our Film Society website, www.chesterfilmfans.co.uk, and follow us on Twitter @chesterfilmfan.

If you need any help, please get in touch, we will be happy to answer your questions. Contact by phone or by emailing help@chesterfilmfans.co.uk

Enjoy the Movies!
