WINTER GARDENS FILM FESTIVAL: SHORT FILM COMPETITION
***Our 2019 film festival is now over - please keep checking back for future announcements for 2020.***
Building on the success of our 2015 - 2018 seasons, the Winter Gardens Film Festival is pleased to announce we will again be running our short film competition as part of our annual film festival held in Blackpool's historic Winter Gardens.
All shortlisted entries will be screened as part of a special event at the Blackpool Winter Gardens Opera House, a unique venue, built in 1939 as a cine-variety theatre, combining a super cinema with a world class stage for theatrical performance. The venue, with a capacity of just under 3000 is the second largest in the UK and the only venue of this type and size to hold permanent HD/Surround Sound cinema capability.
As if that weren’t enough, the Opera House is the last word in Art Deco luxury with a number of spectacularly designed rooms and spaces straight out of the Hollywood Glamour era.
We’ll be announcing our programme as we secure the licenses for films and agree our programme of events but we can reveal that the 2019 season begins on the Friday 15 March with a dazzling cocktail party launch and a night of Hollywood Glamour!
