Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival is based in England’s most northerly town, Berwick-upon-Tweed, in rural north Northumberland and on the borders of Scotland.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival is continually inspired by its coastal location, and the Berwick-upon-Tweed community lies at the heart of the festival’s activities and events programming. Each year Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival organises workshops and events within the community to share local cinematic experiences.

Each year the Festival also works with local schools to deliver a school screening programme at The Maltings. In 2022, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival facilitated an online screening platform to allow local schools to screen a variety of short films in their classrooms accompanied by worksheets to support critical learning.

Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival is proud to be a part of Berwick Festivals, taking place throughout the year, which showcase arts, nature, heritage and food across the town.

There’s plenty more to do in Berwick-upon-Tweed whilst visiting the Festival. Soak up the surroundings with a range of coastal walks, relive the past at historic sites and enjoy a great meal at a range of local eateries.
