It is our great pleasure to give you the Tees Valley International Film Festival 2023!
TVIFF arrived with a bang last year and knocked the socks of the British film festival network with an event like no other. As well as showcasing and rewarding the finest short films by undiscovered filmmakers from across the globe, we held industry leading workshops, we had gala screenings which included Q&As with the Directors and Actors, there were seminars which featured several British TV A-listers including Mark Benton and Tim Healy and the four day festival was topped off by a glittering awards ceremony attended by over 500 people.
Based within the renowned ARC Arts Centre in the heart of Teesside, we are the only British film festival in a major town or city that has every festival event happening under one roof. We also have affiliations with a plethora of production companies, theatrical agents, top level industry professionals, Teesside University, other film festivals in the UK and US and even the BBC and ITV...so our word is our bond. Being selected by TVIFF will give your work a lot more than just a digital image of a laurel wreath. We won't rest until we've given our selections the biggest platform and the brightest spotlight possible.
Check out our photos and read our five star reviews to get a better taste of what took place in 2022.
