 Bringing together venues and organisations in the Peterborough area, the Gateway Film Festival launched in November 2019. Gateway aims to celebrate local history, community as well as being Peterborough's gateway to film culture from the past and around the world. 

In 2023, Gateway was selected by Film Hub South East to run their branch of the BFI Spotlight project 2023-2026 and so far has supported the launch of brand new film programmes with Dissected Cinema, Culture Relic, Peterborough Latvian Community Association, Nene Park, Flourish and more to come. 

Gateway Film Festival is a project of Cine-Sister CIC (Company number 11848524) and run by Emily Steele-Dias.
