Welcome to The 2020 Chester International Film Festival, our 34th!

We are delighted to offer a contemporary collection of the best in world cinema, in the comfortable and friendly atmosphere of Chester Storyhouse. From the Cold War drama Balloon to the controversial coming of age feature And Then We Danced, our exciting programme is designed to encourage discussion, with noted speakers introducing each film.

OPENING NIGHT!
Friday 6th March – The Farewell
Golden Globe-winning comedy-drama
The Farewell launches the festival in style, followed by a drinks reception – your ticket stub includes a free drink.

After it’s outstanding launch in 2014, we will again be hosting the 7th Chester Animation Festival  in a special stand alone event.  We will show the best in international animations following a call for submissions.

The festival is organised by Chester Film Society. Running since 1970, we have provided an unbroken opportunity for our audiences to experience the best in contemporary cinema. If you are interested in future film events, please visit our Film Society website, www.chesterfilmfans.co.uk.

If you need any help, please get in touch, we will be happy to answer your questions.

Enjoy the Movies!
