“Bath Film Festival has always punched above its weight – and this year’s event is no exception” Bristol 24/7

This is FilmBath Festival’s 28th consecutive year with its highly respected brand and strong, loyal following, it is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the South West.

The largest film festival of its kind in the South West, FilmBath (previously Bath Film Festival)’s longevity indicates how well supported it is; many others have sprung up and fallen away during the festival’s existence. The festival has a reputation for bringing a truly stimulating and eclectic programme of films to Bath which draws an audience of over 4,500 from a 40-mile radius.

The willingness of film distributors to place new and forthcoming titles with the festival
– such as our 2017 previews of Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri, Battle of the Sexes and Professor Marston & the Wonder Women– is evidence of drawing power and profile.

THREE-QUARTERS OF BFF ATTENDEES ARE AGED 25 – 64, SOCIAL CLASS A/B LEADING ACTIVE, AFFLUENT LIFESTYLES

Our average attendance at the 2017 FilmBath Festival was 86% with around 4,500 bums on seats.

While 61% of our audience travel less than 3 miles to visit the festival, 25% travel over 6 miles. Eager anticipation for the festival generates a buzz at screenings which we wish we could bottle!

Such a well-developed relationship with the community offers a unique opportunity for advertisers to reach this discerning and high spending demographic group.
