Against The Tide
23rd-27th October 2019
A Cinematic Exploration of a Shifting Time & Place.
Margate Film Festival is a creative and cinematic arts organisation, established to build communities and culture through film screenings and events.
Launching a sell-out pilot season in October ‘18, the festival showcases a range of local and international films, enriched by live performance, Q&As, exhibitions and public installations.
‘Against The Tide’ is a 5-day festival of film and moving image, exploring cultural politics, local heritage, rebellion and migration.
“It’s a little bit gritty, a little bit edgy, a little bit arty.”
– Festival Director, Kate Williamson, (Margate Mercury interview, Sept 2018)
Margate Film Festival wouldn’t be possible without the help and support of our community. We are a not-for-profit, volunteer organisation where every penny goes towards supporting local arts and independent filmmaking. Donate today and help keep cinema thriving.
