WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH FIFF DURING COVID-19?

Due to the extension of the Covid-19 restrictions in England until 19th July, we have made the difficult decision to make the Folkestone Short Film Festival on 3rd July a closed-door event. Click here for more information.

In the current climate with the Covid-19 pandemic our events have been severely affected by the restrictions imposed by the Government. Venues have been shut and social gatherings have been banned, this has had a major effect on our operations. As such we have launched a FUNDRAISER to help us through these testing times. We hope that, with your support, we can come back from this bigger and better than ever before.

We hope you all remain safe and we’ll see you face-to-face as soon as possible.
