Arguably one of the most exciting aspects of the movie industry are the film festivals which appear all over the world, promoting the best and newest movies from tenured filmmakers as well as up-and-coming filmmaking talent. Indeed, the sheer amount of film festivals which can now be attended in the UK, and internationally, is staggering - meaning blocking out the calendar will leave your annual leave completely decimated! However, what you lose in holiday entitlement, you gain in choice, because there is pretty much a movie festival for every genre out there!
Here at UK Film Review we like to scour the globe (by which we mean social media) for the most diverse and eclectic mix of film festivals happening around the world, and promote them here. Much like our Film Reviews and Movie Trailers, we do not discriminate on any kind of budget or scale. The events you see here are simply ones we think our beloved readers will find most interesting, and hope to bring them to your attention.

Articles & Reviews
Our team of dedicated film critics also attend many of these film festivals, writing up reviews of the events themselves, as well as the films which make up the programmes. You can follow our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages to stay up to date with these kind of goings on.
If you are an organiser of a film festival and would like one of our team to attend, please send a luxury gift basket to...just kidding. Please use the contact form to get in touch and let us know what kind of coverage you would like. Similarly, if you want to promote your event here, feel free to drop us a line for consideration. We have several ways in which we can help and want to work with festival planners to help make their events a splash.
TESTIMONIALS FROM FILM FESTIVAL ORGANISERS
In 2017, Chelmsford Film Festival launched the first ever film festival in Chelmsford which was a huge success. I can say without hesitation that a large part of our success was due to the support of UK FILM REVIEW.
In the build up to the 4-day festival, UK Film Review marketed the event to their audience and also directly engaged with filmmakers to discuss the benefits of submitting to our new festival.
Throughout this process, we were in constant contact with Chris Olson to adapt our marketing strategy and react to the changing responses.
Now as we prepare for our second year, we look forward to working with UK Film Review and cementing the fantastic relationship that has come out of CFF.
