The Bath Film Festival is returning to the city for another exciting year of films and fun. From up and coming directors, to family classics: the festival has it all. Whether you’re a film buff who’s searching for the next big thing, or just want a cosy evening of relaxing film watching; there’s something for everyone at this brilliant community focussed festival! Here at Homewood Park, a delightful boutique hotel in Bath, we can’t wait to see what’s in store…
The Bath Film Festival’s mission statement is to bring cinema to the local community and through this desire to fill Bath with cinematic goodness, the BFFCC (Bath Film Festival Community Cinema) has been born. Over the course of October, November and December; there will be screenings of some of 2016’s finest film offerings all held in local community venues. You can catch the following films on the following dates:
Showing at Victoria Hall on Saturday 12th November at 4.30pm and St Andrews Community Church on Saturday 17th December at 3.00pm.

Born at the 2014 Bath Film Festival, The F-Rating is a vital and interesting project to help promote women in film. As the BFF explain:
“The statistics on women in film are bleak. Over the last 17 years, the number of films directed by women has fallen. Last year in Hollywood fewer than 5% of films were directed by women and top female actors took home just 40% of their male co-stars’ paycheck.”
So the F-Rating is here to help boost the profile of female directors, writers, lead actors et al. So look out for the F-Rating logo on films and, so goes the project’s own saying, vote with your seat!
You can find out more about the F-Rating and how you can get involved here.
Taking place at this year’s BFF are the exciting IMDb Awards! The two accolades being awarded are The IMDb New Filmmakers Award and The IMDb Script to Screen Award. Both are awards designed to help endorse up and coming talent in the world of cinema. So get yourself down to the awards, you never know- you might be witnessing the start of some amazing careers!
If you love films as much as we do at our beautiful hotel in Bath, then get yourself down to Bath this November. Book direct here or give us a call on 01225 809109 today. The festival is constantly updating and changing, but you can keep an eye on exact dates and more information on events here.
