Margate Film Festival is looking for a new team of enthusiastic volunteers to help shape the 2024 festival. View Opportunities for more information.

Support The Festival


Margate Film Festival is the first of it’s kind in Kent.

Conceived and led by local people, we seek to represent, engage and inspire audiences, bringing communities together through film. 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.

The festival champions inclusivity, diversity and accessibility; with affordable tickets, easy-access venues and a programme shaped by the local communities.

We pick the best films from the festival circuit, our submission platform and new releases.

We focus on scouting emerging directors, female filmmakers, local talent, and seek to amplify the voices of marginalised communities.
