THE LINE-UP for a West Yorkshire film festival taking place this month has now been announced.

Hebden Bridge Film Festival (HBFF) features a host of award-winning and critically acclaimed international and homegrown films, including three UK premieres.

The Festival will take place from March 24 to 26, and will feature screenings, Q&As and panel discussions.

Highlights include the screening of British action comedy Polite Society, a hit of this year’s Sundance, which follows martial arts obsessed teenager Ria Khan who believes she must save her older sister from her impending marriage.

The screening is being hosted in partnership with Bradford Literature Festival and will be followed by a Q&A with Literature Festival director Syima Aslam MBE.

HBFF will also feature multi-award winning Lyra, an intimate portrait of the life and death of Belfast journalist Lyra McKee, who was shot dead in 2019.

International films include Winners, set in a small Iranian town, Bolivian title Utama and Morocco’s The Blue Caftan.

Festival Director, Louise Wadley, said: “We are thrilled for this very exciting and diverse line-up that celebrates the power of filmmaking.

“The Calder Valley is a unique place with a real sense of community. I hope people join us and are inspired by the films.”
