“Bring an open mind and prepare to be engaged: Bath Film Festival is not somewhere you go to be neutral, it’s somewhere you go to participate”

Ken Loach – FilmBath patron

 

Welcome to 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.
