The Whitley Bay Film Festival was set up in 2010 by Primate Productions and a small group of people with a mission to stage something extraordinary in our seaside town.
From the humble origins of organising a screening of Jaws on the local beach, the Festival has gone from strength-to-strength and now delivers a celebrated annual programme of films in unique settings with a strong imaginative and innovative ethos. Further information and dates to follow.
The Patron of the festival is film and screenwriter. Ian La Frenais.
