Alchemy Film Festival comes to the Scottish Borders once again

Alchemy Film Festival, now in it's eighth year attracts filmmakers and audiences from all over the world.

The international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image, founded in 2010, is produced in partnership with Heart of Hawick in the Scottish Borders.

The 2018 festival has shown 133 films from 30 countries over five days, with 36 world premieres, 18 European premieres, 24 UK premieres, 20 Scottish premieres and over fifty filmmakers in attendance.

"One of the reasons for starting Alchemy in a rural town like Hawick was to challenge the notion that culture and high-profile artists could only be seen in the cities."
