Brighton’s film festival will return in early November for our 19th edition.

CINECITY is one of the UK’s key regional film festivals and we have presented an edition every year since 2003. For 2021 we are planning a hybrid festival of both online and physical screenings that will take audiences on adventures in World Cinema and give a platform to our regional filmmakers including younger, emerging talents.
