Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) is one of the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image. Increasingly recognised for its innovative programme and critical engagement, BFMAF presents artists’ and filmmakers’ work in the cinema as well as expanded formats of exhibition and performance. 

"A town like Berwick, with its independent, edge of England mindset, is a good place for a festival that eschews the easy route when the awkward one looks so much more interesting." - Chris Sharratt, A-N news

"It is a cliche to call a festival that is off the beaten circuit ambitious, but over the past two years Berwick has become more than ambitious, it has become an important event. Berwick shows how art remains vital to public debate and the tattered public sphere, and more importantly still it demonstrates the way in which a small community with real intent can educate, provoke and resist." - John Douglas Millar, Art Monthly
