Current Seasons

Filmhouse's varied programme includes a large number of retrospectives, film seasons and specialist festivals, including the Italian and French film festivals, Africa in Motion, Take One Action, Dead By Dawn horror festival, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish and Japanese film weeks, Weans' World (for our younger audience) and many more.
