The South West?s longest-running film festival will have a fresh name and look when it presents its next celebration of new and classic cinema, talent award screenings and workshops in Bath this November.

After 27 years as the Bath Film Festival, the organising charity is changing its title to FilmBath to recognise that its activities now also include:

  • rolling out The F-Rating, championing films directed &/or written by or starring women;
  • a year-round programme of pop-up screenings in outlying places in and around the city;
  • the IMDb New Filmmaker and Script to Screen Awards, for emerging talent,
  • and FilmScore, a competition for young screen composers.

The new branding, created by Koop Design of Bath, will make its debut for the FilmBath Festival 2017 ? an 11-day programme of UK and regional feature and documentary premieres; classics from around the world, awards-nominated shorts, director Q&As and special interest strands, with a full 50% of the films F-Rated.

FilmBath?s executive director Holly Tarquini said: ?The name may be different but we can guarantee that we will be offering the same eye-opening, entertaining and inspiring selection of films and film-related events which have always made this festival unmissable.?

The festival will bring an exceptional array of screenings including documentaries, family films, sci-fi features, Art and Design features and F-rated Films.

Among the impressive and eclectic mix will be three new European films, which have been shortlisted for the EU?s Lux awards.

Full details of all screenings will be available on 6th October 2017, and general bookings open on Friday 13th October 2017.
