York Days at York's Film Festival .
Residents Save 50% on the Best New Cinema this November
Do You Love Film?
Have you ever watched a really good film and want to tell everyone about it? We believe that film is for everyone. Now you can join in York's very own film festival, which takes place every November. There are over 400 films to choose from, and for the past 12 years Aesthetica has welcomed international audiences to York – connecting communities from across the world to share in the enjoyment of independent film. You can see laugh-out-loud comedies, award-winning dramas, thrillers, animation, family friendly and documentaries. The film festival is a window to the world, where you can engage with global stories.
This Festival is for You
This year we are launching a new way for York residents to get involved. It's called York Days. This is your opportunity to attend the festival and soak up as many films as you can. We are also running workshops for children on filmmaking alongside practical sessions where you can learn how to make films on your phone.
