Despite the deluge of snow, Harrogate Film Festival waded ahead with its plans to engage film watchers and film-makers at a series of events.

Highlights included A Night at the Museum, where artefacts at The Royal Pump Museum came to life, a Bond Night within the luxurious surroundings of Cardamom Black and a unique 36 bus film tour around four locations in our beautiful spa town.

There was also the all-important film-makers competition which attracted over 400 entries, from countries across the globe, with one film-maker travelling all the way from Canada to attend.

The winners in each film category then received their awards during a ceremony at Everyman Cinema.

Adam Chandler, managing director at Harrogate Film Festival said: “Despite the disappointing weather conditions, everybody who attended the festival had a great time. There really were some unique experiences on offer and I would like to thank all who attended, the film-makers and our sponsors for supporting us with these special events.”

Harrogate Film Festival will return in March 2019.
