Wide Skies Films

Wide Skies Films


Our Wide Skies Film programme places cinema at the heart of our communities. Working with our partners at the Queens Hall Arts, Hexham Book Festival and Film Bee and supported by the BFI Neighbourhood Cinema Touring Fund, we are providing a regular programme of documentaries, world cinema and special interest films throughout the year and supporting film clubs and venues in the communities of West Northumberland to increase access to film and encourage the communal viewing and enjoyment of films.

Other films are shown on a regular basis at venues in Allendale, Haydon Bridge, Kielder (The Castle and the Calvert Trust), Slaley, and Tarset.

In June 2017 we will be holding the second Wide Skies Film Festival - working with other venues and community groups to programme and present a wonderful weekend of screenings and linked events.

Help to make this happen by supporting us with our crowdfunding campaign to bring back Tony Berchmans to Hexham Abbey on June 9th
