Cromarty Film Festival 2023

For the first time - in 16 years - an all-female team is leading the Cromarty Film festival. We offered a flavour of things to come with our events on 3rd + 4th December. Now the main activities are taking place from 24th-26th March. To mark the festival's start and end, we’re hosting free projections on Cromarty Lighthouse. The programme has been thoughtfully planned to cater for every age and taste - we’ve got docs, shorts, classics, animation, anime, workshops, talks, brand new films plus a dash of comedic horror to keep everyone alert!

We start off the weekend with a special screening in the Screen Machine for the whole of Cromarty Primary School. We’re delighted to welcome new guests, project partners and festival benefactors on board. Delicious food and food trucks will be available with special offers to link in with certain films.

Cromarty is a beautiful place to visit in the Black Isle, Highlands of Scotland, so happy we managed to attend this year…well done to all involved! So impressed with what you managed to accomplish! Incredible. I’d love to help somehow next year. It was a lovely weekend. Load of nice comments from other creatives on the Instagram. Donna Wilson, award-winning Scottish designer
