Festival Overview

Borderlines Film Festival, the UK's largest rural film festival, brings quality films from around the world and close to home to the rural areas of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Malvern and the Marches early each spring.

17 days of wall-to-wall cinema in steel and glass arts centres, stuccoed assembly rooms, the back rooms of pubs and innumerable village halls, 30% of our programme now consists of previews, films showing prior to their UK release.


As a rule, the Festival does not run competitions and awards. Occasionally, in tandem with the Rural Media Company we hold a Short Film Competition.
