  • Keswick Film Festival: Our Last Tango (12A)

    Keswick Film Festival: Our Last Tango (12A)

    Keswick Film Festival returns for its 19th year with its acclaimed blend of the best films from the world’s great Festivals, thought-provoking documentaries plus some retrospectives and very special guests. As we try to decide which of the current crop of films from around the world we should see, KFF 2018 will also chart some of the degrees of separation between today’s directors, stars and the characters they have portrayed over the years. Our short film competition – The Ospreys – will undoubtedly entertain and amuse and maybe give us a first glimpse of tomorrow’s film makers and KFF will again be joining us here at Rheged to make best use of our huge cinema screen. Don’t just take our word for it! This is what our audience said last year: • “An outstanding choice of films and a very friendly atmosphere” • “Love the festival. Been for the last three years and will return next year” • “Everyone really friendly, great time indulging a passion for film within a gorgeous location & plenty to explore” • “We very much enjoyed it and have already booked our hotel for next year” Our Last Tango“ is above all a love story.
