NFF 2022: Sketchy Link to Northants and 48hr Film Challenge

Northampton Film Festival returns to Northampton Filmhouse for 2022!

After our virtual festival in 2021, Screen Northants are back with Northampton Film Festival 2022: Know Your Place showcasing the best Northants short films and feature films with a local connection.

NFF 2022 runs from 16th – 22nd May including events at the Grosvenor Centre and the University of Northampton, with all our competition and feature screenings at the Filmhouse 19th – 22nd May. This year’s festival is all about knowing your place: knowing there are opportunities for Northants people in the ever-expanding British film industry and knowing there’s plenty going on here in Northampton.


As well as the Main Competition, Northampton Film Festival invites people with a not-so-close link to Northants to submit their short films in any genre.

We’ll be showing the shortlisted films as part of this event, as well as the winners of our 48hr Film Challenges throughout 2021/2022.

Be prepared for an eclectic mix!

Tickets are just £5 (plus booking fee)!
