While experiencing independent film, ASFF also invites you to explore and discover the beautiful city of York. All our screenings take place in a rich variety of iconic and historic sites, all within walking distance of one another. Locations include medieval halls and purpose-built theatres as well as cinemas and luxury hotels, offering a unique meeting point between the historical and the contemporary. The city and its unique atmosphere provides a memorable backdrop and during the festival it becomes transformed into a playground for lovers of film.
