  • Save The Tower Theatre

    The Tower Theatre is in danger of being lost due to the Covid-19 lockdown. We at Folkestone International Film & TV Festival are desperately hoping you can help save this iconic community theatre.

Due to the national lockdown in England all FIFF public events have been postponed until further notice. At present all events for 2021 will still go ahead.

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 in 2021. In the meantime please do keep checking back for the relaunch of the Hellfire@Home Festival.
