Welcome to the Gateway Film Festival 2020!

Whilst Covid-19 may have scuppered our plans for an in person festival this year we are pleased to bring you a fantastic selection of world and local cinema at home instead!


Gateway has sourced 15 short films from around the world showcasing a mixture of documentary, fiction, animation and artist moving image. In addition, we have three programmes of archival material including a special screening of Lois Weber's Hypocrites (1915) with a brand new Gateway commissioned score by local musician Lloyd Davies plus two films on the ICO Second Sight tour and a selection of films from the East Anglian Film Archive's Amateur women filmmakers collection with new music by Lewis Hall.

We would like to thank our partners Necessity, EAFA, Kino Lorber, ICO, FilmFreeway and Paper Rhino.

 
 

FRIDAY

We kick off the festival this year with a shorts programme of films celebrating, and exploring varying identities. Following this, in the evening we are premiering a brand new commissioned score by Lloyd Davies written for Lois Weber's Hypocrites (1915).
