Chester International Film Festival
2018 marks our 5th International Animation Festival. We have been absolutely delighted by both the number and the quality of the entries. Animation Finalists will exclusively be shown alongside the main features. Good luck to all our entrants. Our audiences will vote throughout the festival and at our last film THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT on 7th March the two highest rated animations will go head to head.
