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)
