“Feast yourself on films from morning till night” at Film Bath Festival 2021

Feast yourself on films from morning till night for a whole week, with must-see premieres and talks, plus highlights from the last 30 years, all at amazingly affordable prices. 


FilmBath Festival is at the heart of all things film in Bath and in 2021, is back for its 31st edition, screening 33 films over 7 days, between 28 Oct – 4 Nov, taking place in various locations including its main hub, Little Theatre, Bath. This UK film festival is not to be missed.

We’re thrilled to welcome audiences back into the cinema with such a brilliant line-up, including a special programme of films directed by women and a wonderful after school programme for all ages. As the founders of the F-Rating it is perhaps unsurprising that 70% of the films we’re screening are directed by women. Holly Tarquini, Executive Director at FilmBath

The festival opened on Thurs 28 Oct with Mothering Sunday starring Olivia Coleman, Colin Firth and Josh O’Connor (Prince Charles in The Crown) with Q&As from the film’s producers, Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley, and closes with The Eyes of Tammy Faye, described by the BBC as ‘Hollywood Oscar bait’ and starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield.


In between there is everything from the brilliant and bonkers Pig with Nic Cage (at his best) to Petite Maman, the latest work of genius from Céline Sciamma of Portrait of a Lady on Fire fame and an intensely creepy double bill of Titane and Lamb set to scare the bejesus out of everyone on Halloween.

FilmBath takes pride in homing the F-Rating, FilmScore, the IMDb Awards, and FilmBath FilmClub; amplifying diverse voices on screen and behind the camera.
