Move over, Cannes – the North East is the place to be for film lovers this November thanks to the North East International Film Festival. Venues from Whitley Bay to Stockton will be playing host to the Festival’s curated selection of films, including Oscar-winners, BFI-funded projects and locally made features from Monday 14th-Sunday 20th November.

A highlight of the jam-packed programme includes the premiere of documentary Dirty, Sexy and Totally Iconic, a 50th anniversary celebration of North East staple Get Carter which has been created by original producer Michael Klinger’s son and local filmmaker Tony.

Cinephiles can grab day tickets for a measly £12.50 or a three-day pass for just £25 and catch as many screenings as they can manage across the North East, including those of the shortlisted for NEIFF awards.  Beyond the silver screen, NEIFF also promises exclusive events from networking events with industry professionals, free workshops to provide valuable insight and experience to budding local filmmakers, and of course the prestigious closing gala where the winner of the festival will be selected from the finalists.

Whether you want to catch the odd show, make a day of it, or dedicate your whole weekend to North East spectacles, the North East International Film Festival is worth a look-in. Check the website for full listings.

North East International Film Festival takes place at venues across the region from Monday 14th-Sunday 20th October.
