Bath Film Festival becomes FilmBath

We have evolved!

Bath Film Festival has become FilmBath, the heart of the film world in Bath and home of FilmBath Festival (previously Bath Film Festival), the F-Rating, FilmScore, the IMDb Awards, Pop Up Screenings & more.

FilmBath is the new umbrella organisation encompassing five constituent parts:

The F-Rating champions women in film by highlighting films directed by, written by and starring women with a Fairtrade-type stamp;

FilmBath Festival (previously Bath Film Festival) screens the best new and upcoming films from around the world with a stimulating and eclectic programme of films, workshops and film events in venues across Bath and beyond;

The IMDb Awards support and reward emerging talent with the Script to Screen Award and the New Filmmaker Award;

FilmScore offers 14 – 19 year olds the opportunity to write a score for a short film and we help them begin a career in film composition;

Pop-up screenings show popular films in hard to reach areas around Bath and North East Somerset to low income communities, focusing specifically on families.

Our mission is to champion and showcase diversity on screen and behind the camera to as widely inclusive an audience as possible, and to inspire exhibitors to programme more diverse films both in the UK and beyond.
