The Tees Valley International Film Festival is a four day celebration of all aspects of the craft of filmmaking. We invite undiscovered and independent filmmakers from all over the world to submit their short films for inclusion in the festival, the best of which will be screened across the course of the four days. From there, a select few will be nominated for an award, the worthy winners being presented with their prize at our glittering closing ceremony.
The Tees Valley is unique in character and rich in history. Nowhere is an event that celebrates, rewards and nurtures creativity more deserved.
- Michael Luke, Festival Director
Based in the renowned ARC Stockton Arts Centre, the Tees Valley International Film Festival also comprises gala screenings of major feature films that include live audience Q&As with well known actors and directors. We’re also hosting a number of workshops and seminars lead by top industry professionals, all designed to help achieve our goal of kickstarting a new generation of creative, of all ages and backgrounds, within the Tees Valley.
All TVIFF events are held under one roof at ARC Stockton Arts Centre, the beating heart of entertainment and the arts in Teesside. With a state of the art cinema facility, a five hundred seat theatre, a workshop space, art gallery, studio theatre and a beautiful café and bar area, there is no better marriage between event and venue than ours.
