To put independent cinema in the spotlight that both films and their makers deserve.
We're bringing a quality selection of local & international short & feature films to Paisley, Scotland, offering a cultural gathering for both film lovers and professionals.
Our Selection Process
Submissions are judged by industry professionals.
We do not make any selections until the Final Deadline closes. This means every film submitted has an equal chance of winning. Previous judges have included:
Scott Kyle: Outlander
Ian Pattison: Rab C Nesbitt
Moonglass: Mercy Falls
Every year we bring a weekend of film fun to you at the Wynd Centre.
Our programme gets bigger and better every year, and is consistently a fantastic opportunity for both film fans and those in the industry to enjoy films, activities, networking and an exciting awards ceremony!
The HB Film Festival was incredible. We felt so proud and lucky to be involved. What sets it apart is that it is evident that it is run by people who are passionate about films, independent filmmaking, and passionate about creating an environment that is supportive and nurturing to independent filmmakers. Their passion and commitment was felt from day one. There was clear communication, excellent publicity, and celebration of the films, and a wonderful atmosphere at the in-person event. There was something for everyone and we can't wait to go back! Thanks HB Film Festival!
