The 2022 UK Film Review Festival Lineup Announced

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Film Festival Feature by Chris Olson

When I decided to launch the film festival back in 2020, the world had never seemed stranger to me. A pandemic was hitting hard, life was being turned outside in, and the future suddenly seemed to feel a lot more blurry.

The UK Film Review Festival (UKFRF) felt like a way to stay connected to the critics of the site and the filmmakers who form our active community, whilst shielding ourselves from uncertainty by holding the event online and in our control.

Two years later and normality has resumed but the world seems stranger still. A new world order is in effect and life steel feels uncertain and to be frank, scary. That's why I am so thrilled and honoured to be hosting the 3rd UK Film Review Festival with our biggest lineup so far! Not only does it still help us to feel connected by our shared love of independent film, it also helps us to know that hard work and passion will often get us through the tough times - which may come unyieldingly.
