This March, Ramsgate welcomes international filmmaking talent for the first ever Ramsgate International Film and TV Festival. Taking place in the beautiful Royal Harbour, the festival aims to be the largest multi-platform festival in East Kent.
The Festival’s focus is to showcase new works, help promote filmmakers and to bring a different screening experience to help encourage the local audience to view and appreciate independent cinema.
Taking centre stage is the World Features competition, which includes:
- Bridge (India)
- By Any Means (Bermuda)
- Beyond the Yellow Line (Italy)
- Flytrap (USA)
- The Alley Cat (USA)
- Tatara Samurai (Japan)
There is also a Short Film Competition and a celebration of Polish Cinema featuring a screening of Jan P. Matuszyński’s ‘The last Family’.
The festival also provides a Youth Taster, which will be a collection of films by young local people in their first attempt at making movies. It is held in collaboration with the Kent Film Foundation, which utilises Film as a tool to engage young people more effectively in the way they operate in the community.
Screenings are complemented by a strong line-up of quality events and seminars, with industry professionals of high reputation. All of the screenings have been chosen by the Selection Committee, which is composed of a panel of industry professionals and local residents.
The festival takes place from the 24th-26th March 2017.
