Welcome to Worcester Film Festival!
This is our inaugural year but don't let that put you off! We are hosting a hugely ambitious city-wide festival. We have two screening venues, one modern and one historic, that reflect our changing city, an awards gala at the impressive Guildhall, movie-themed stalls throughout the centre, a pub/cafe crawl that will take you through the decades of film, live music, special horror showings in old cells, workshops (some run by the prestigious DRP Group), q&a's and networking evenings. This is an event for you, the filmmakers.
Come enjoy our city and see what we have to offer. We want this to be a festival in every sense of the word, a theme park for filmmakers with a jam-packed map that will leave you wishing you could be in two places at once.
All of Worcester is behind this event. These are just a few of our partners and sponsors:
Worcester City Council
Worcester County Council
University of Worcester
Harms Way Studios
BBC Hereford & Worcester
Royal Porcelain Works
Join us for this 3-day event and we promise you'll want to return year after year!
The festival is being run by Hendrik Harms. He's a Writer/Director and owner of award-winning production company Harms Way Studios. He is currently adapting the Stephen King short story 'All That You Love Will Be Carried Away' to a movie. His previous film ‘The Music Box’ is doing the film festival circuit at the moment and has already won two awards. Hendrik has also opened Worcester’s first film studio with the hope that it will bring more productions to the West Midlands.
