DEAR FUTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2023
LOST + FOUND 

 

26 - 29 October 2023 

 

This year's festival is a gathering of films and special events on the theme of LOST + FOUND, taking place at The Electric Palace Cinema, Hastings, East Sussex.

 

Rebecca E Marshall, Clare Whistler and Rachel Pearson are your hosts. We warmly invite you to join us for this array of shorts, features, a woodland walk, live music, performance, conversation and other small findings along the way.

"We're shining a light on pieces of beauty and everyday strangeness discovered with closer and slower looking. Forgotten or overlooked scraps gathered together to think what can be reused, remade or left behind"

- Rebecca

Dear Future Film Festival 2023 is a partnership with The Electric Palace Cinema.
