Cornwall Film Festival, Newquay

The 10th Cornwall Film Festival, Newquay

Four screens, three days, one massive party. The Cornwall Film Festival is gearing up to celebrate its 10th birthday with its biggest and most diverse programme ever.

This year’s Cornwall Film Festival will take place the weekend of 4-6 November in its new home, the Lighthouse Cinema, in Newquay, after nine years in Falmouth.

“Everyone connected with the Festival is particularly excited this year,” said Donna. “Moving to Newquay has injected a freshness into the way we planned this year’s events, along with the support of Newquay Town Council, and it’s a great opportunity to remind that the film festival is for everyone in Cornwall – and beyond.”

On offer in November will be at least 15 British and international feature films, many in preview and with Q&As; four Cornish features, all with Q&As; a half dozen British and international documentaries; over 175 Cornish and international short films, including competition screenings in six genres; special screenings, including surf, archival and Cornish and Celtic-language films; plus workshops, talks and parties from Friday to Sunday.

“Look out for a few surprises too,” added Donna. “All our fingers are crossed for a couple of high-profile screenings that you’d otherwise have to travel to London for. So this year you can have birthday cake and eat it too.”

Tickets and weekend passes for Cornwall Film Festival are on sale at the Lighthouse Cinema box office (01637 878650) or online at
