Lights, camera, action!

The Isle of Wight can boast several film festivals, as well as a handful of film societies and interest groups.

We have many filmmakers living and working on the Island, taking inspiration from their surroundings. With two mainstream cinemas and several venues showing arthouse films, there is something for everyone.
