2019 Margate Film Festival
Oct 23 – Oct 27 all-day
2019 Margate Film Festival

Margate Film Festival returns this year with an ambitious, packed programme following its sell-out debut success last year.

The festival, running from October 23-27, showcases British and  international shorts and features, paired with experimental performance, talks and Q&As.

This year there will be 30 events and screenings across seven venues, five exhibitions, 900 tickets on offer and an expected 2,500 visitors.

The festival embraces a DIY-attitude and community driven programming, collaborating with a wide range of organisations and individuals to present a unique season of events.

Coinciding with the Turner Prize’s residency in Margate, the 2019 edition will explore themes around ‘Against The Tide’; focusing on communal heritage, cultural politics, censorship and migration.

A new local strand includes a programme of short films all shot on location around Margate and the surrounding towns in ‘The Unimagined’.

The opening night feature, ‘Above The Clouds’ by Leon Chambers, takes audiences on a heart-warming coming-of-age road trip from Margate to Scotland and there will be a free pop-up video archive, ‘The Margate Time Warp’, featuring films of Margate from 1925 – 2019.
