Harkat 16mm Film Festival Harkat 16mm Film Festival

Welcome to the 2020 *Virtual* Edition of the 16mm Film Festival

The world’s only film festival which exclusively showcases films shot on celluloid!

The 3-day programme explores what most of us have been missing the most this year: relationships. Relationships with ourselves, with others, with physical spaces and with the medium of celluloid. We follow protagonists in both fiction and documentary as they discover their own identity, struggle with issues of migration, experience role play, fall in love, fall out of love, learn about the land they live on, the culture they left, time gone by and moments in memory.

The 16mm film festival is a yearly event where we celebrate the physical beauty of celluloid film – in all its formats, from Super8 to glorious 70mm. This year, instead of our usual hands-on workshops, we are excited to offer virtual festival ‘goers’ an range of films like never before – from experimental shorts which explore the medium of celluloid to moving documentaries to downright entertaining fiction.
