Welcome to the Long Shot Film Festival

Welcome to our online film festival, highlighting the best film-making from Warrington. Every film you see here has a Warrington connection either in front or behind the camera.

Since 2009 we’ve been showcasing the best in local film-making. For 2016 we’re trying something new and introducing an online film festival to complement our normal event in October. If you’ve got a short film you’d like to submit for Long Shot 2016 please check our eligibility criteria.

You can watch a wide selection of films shown at previous Long Shot film festivals, and find links to the film-makers website, as part of our film archive.

Please note: These films cover all genres and some may include distressing scenes or include language unsuitable for children.
