ATIFF: the Newcastle Emlyn International Film Festival

The inaugural Attic Theatre International Film Festival is organised by the Attic Theatre, a group of actors, film-makers and technicians who are captivated by the medium of film. Our aim is to encourage excellence in film-making and to present the medium of movie to our audiences through a free weekend-long event. We invite submissions from around the world. Newcastle Emlyn serves a wide area across three counties in South West Wales – Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

Cawdor Hall Market Square Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire SA38 9AF United Kingdom

We have an eighty seat auditorium in a grade-2-listed historic building in the centre of town with a full size screen. The official selection for the festival will consist of approximately 40 short films in competition. Screenings will be divided into sessions of 4 to 6 short films. Although award categories have been established, there will be no separation of genre into specific screening sessions. Please email if you have any questions. [see address below]

ATIFF is genre-fluid; romance, horror, action, documentary, noir, art, technology. All welcome.
