This year the online festival, fff @ home, will take place between 27th November and 4th December, meaning you can watch a special selection of films from the comfort of home, tickets go on sale on Friday 13th November!

The all-embracing range of titles for all ages and tastes, many accompanied by virtual guests or highlighted by specialist recorded introductions, has always been a highlight of the annual cinematic calendar. An innovation this year (in common with many international festivals) will be a week of online screenings (fff @ home) in collaboration with Festival Scope. Many of these titles will be UK premieres.
