The 9th Annual Southampton International Film Festival will run from 15-20th October 2020.



How the world has changed since our last festival in 2019!  Due to the ongoing restrictions caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the difficult decision to hold the 2020 Southampton International Film Festival online only. Films will be live streamed online via Twitch, and further details of the channel and schedules will be announced shortly. Our 2020 Film Guide will be released online in early October 2020, & the award results will be streamed live on Sun 18th October 2020.


Whilst we appreciate that this may disappoint some, we very much hope that audiences and filmmakers will understand the reason for this change and continue to support the festival through these uncertain times.


We look forward to watching some great films with you!
