Welcome to the English Riviera Film Festival
On this website you will find highlights from our journey over the past 8 years and all the latest festival news together with an interview resource with film industry directors, producers and artists from the UK and around the world. Series two of the Festival’s Interview series is currently in production for release this Summer (2023).
Our mission is to celebrate and promote film making in the South West of England as well as provide a showcase for talent from across the globe. In this way we aim to promote the South West as a place where the film industry can do business, a picture-perfect location with a wealth of film making talent ready to join the world stage.
We have grown from a single day’s event in 2015 to a week-long programme of film related content comprising screening events, industry workshops, panels and networking, all culminating in the English Riviera Film Awards. Previous award winners have hailed from the USA, Canada, Italy, Netherlands and Japan . With festival films – film makers going on to feature on TV and Cinemas internationally.
You can follow the latest news about the Festival on our Facebook , Twitter and instagram feeds.
English Riviera Film Festival is volunteer led not-for profit venture sponsored by CVP (2021 Festival ) and in partnership with, Devon and Cornwall Film Artizan Gallery, Premiere Scene and South Devon College.
