With one-off interactive cinematic experiences and classic films in our town centre, Eastleigh Film Festival puts the excitement back into the movies.

Presented by

Film Festival 2016
After the sell-out success of our 2014 and 2015 events and brilliant audience feedback, we were thrilled that 2016 followed suit and continued to prove a hit with our fans. Last year saw the hilarious Cornetto Trilogy pop up at multiple venues around the town; we terrified audiences with our outdoor screening of The Blair Witch Project in Itchen Valley Country Park; and we staged our most ambitious festival finale to date with Airplane in Southampton Airport! As always the festival offered something for every movie lover and gave audiences the chance to see classic films screened in unusual places through the town.
