We are overjoyed to announce the inaugural Tees Valley International Film Festival. For the first time we will bring the people of the Tees Valley together to showcase the finest short films from around the globe and also to celebrate film, and all areas of the craft of film making, to both entertain and inspire enthusiasts and creatives across the region.
Featuring industry professional guests and film making workshops, the Tees Valley International Film Festival will be held at the renowned ARC Stockton Arts Centre from 27th until 29th October 2022.
