With heavy hearts we regret to inform you that we are not going to be running the film festival this year. We are so sorry to disappoint you. We're gutted too. We'll miss the buzz in the air, the dressing of the venues, the running around town looking for lost guests, the convivial chat in the bar and the general revelling in all things film.
So during that first weekend in December, raise a glass to festivals past and think about your own favourite films, maybe even dig them out, cook up a curry and have your own wee gala event, basking in the wonder of a cracking film.
In other news though, several previous guests or friends of the festival were nominated today in the Scottish Baftas. Take a bow Paul Laverty, Darren Hercher, Ross Hogg, Will Anderson - and our animation sound designer extraordinaire Keith Duncan who worked with Ross and Will on their shorts.
Keep safe, keep loving films, until we meet again.
As well as all the other fantastic events during the 2019 festival, Keith Duncan and Cat Bruce once again joined us and ran our animation workshop over the course of the weekend. The film involved hand drawn segments which were filmed plus a soundtrack made up entirely by those that attended the workshop. Many festival goers, both young and old, contributed and the resulting film was once again rushed to be screened at our finale night in the Victoria Hall. So... if you contributed to it or... just fancy seeing it, we've added it below.
And here's a wee article by journalist Harry Jamshid about last year's festival.
Huge congratulations must go to one of our fabulous 2019, guests, Stuart Wilson, who was on the stage at the Royal Albert Hall last night with the sound crew from the film 1917 to receive the BAFTA for Best Sound.
As well as all the wonderful films and workshops within our programme, a couple of other events to alert you to during the weekend are...

So... each year at the Cromarty Film Festival we have the wonderful Nigel and his minibus ferrying people around from venue to venue, particularly up the steep hill. However, this year we have something really special to add to that.
