Welcome to the first Hebden Bridge Film Festival
With over 500 years of non-conformism in the valley it seems fitting that the Hebden Bridge Film Festival theme is “The Other”. We will be celebrating films by or about those who “dare to be different”, whether they exist in the margins, sit outside the mainstream or just plain don’t fit in.
HBFF will bring you a dazzling programme of World cinema, UK and US Independent Film, as well as well as supporting and fostering new talent. It will be a packed weekend of exciting new films that will engage, challenge and delight you.
We are proud to be partnering with the beautifully restored, state-of-the-art Hebden Bridge Picture House cinema and with Hebden Bridge Town Hall as our Film Festival Hub where Filmmakers and Film lovers can come together and experience the wonderful community spirit that our beautiful town is so famous for.
Welcoming Patron Maxine Peake:
I am delighted to become the Hebden Bridge Film Festival Patron. Hebden Bridge is a special place for me, and the theme of ‘The Other’ is close to my heart. I couldn’t think of a better place to have a Film Festival, and I’m sure it will become a destination for film lovers. I can’t wait to show my new short film there.
march 22 (Friday) - 24 (Sunday)
