Nottingham International Film Festival

‘The Queen of the Midlands’ embraced its very first international film festival in October 2016 and the ethos of her most famous son was honoured by bringing the riches of international film to the fair people of one of the U.K’s most historical cities.
The Nottingham International film Festival took place throughout the city over a three day weekend from the 7th to the 9th of October 2016. The city’s fabled art deco cinema THE SAVOY played host to world and UK premieres and the festival hub at German cinema themed venue DAS KINO created a party vibe for the many travelling filmmakers.
Nottingham’s moto of ‘virtue outlives death’ is as bold as the many stories that have been told about this world famous city and its rich history of story was at the very core of the inaugural film festival that found and showcased original narratives from around the world. A sister festival to both the Manchester and Oxford film festivals, NottIFF is now looking to follow in its sisters’ festival’s footsteps and make its own international film festival one that can stand up and be counted within the international film community.
The official selection featured exciting world and U.K premieres of feature length and short films from world cinema that portrayed everything from gripping indie thrillers to intriguing documentaries.
The NOTTIFF 2016 line- up included the UK premiere of eventual film of the festival ‘Planet Ottakring’, the European premiere of SXSW’s ‘INSATIABLE’, which tells the tragic story of revolutionary chef, Homaro Cantu, award winning UK narrative ‘Breaking’ starring Antonio Thomas and Martin MCcann, BAFTA winning ‘Operator’, U.S sensation SWEE’ PEA and award winning UK feature ‘MADE IN TAIWAN’, from rising stars Jonny and Leo Moore. Adding to all this the festival programmed a brilliant German cinema selection with critically acclaimed films from TRIBECA that included FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY and feature film HEAR THE SILENCE.
NOTTIFF will return in October 2017 bigger and better!
