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.

Our next event is the Long Shot Mini-Fest in early 2018. We’re looking for short films from local film-makers to show on the night so get in touch to find out more.
