Event description


The annual UK International Veterans’ Film Festival is dedicated to raising awareness about our serving and ex serving Armed Forces community, their families, the unique set of difficulties they face and the impact war has on our society.

Arguably, Film is still the most powerful medium to create stories and put ideas out into the world. Now, more than ever before, it is possible for creativity to emerge and be shared through digital media.

Our aim is to bring to life veterans’ stories whilst showcasing talent through compelling, moving, sometimes disturbing and funny stories. We want to facilitate a greater opportunity to understand the lives of our veterans and their families, their struggles and successes.

We want to share their stories that are harrowing, disturbing or inspiring; stories that show us a side of the human condition that so many of us will never see or experience – all through the medium of film.

Whilst inviting our community to think about how film provokes them and how relevant a film’s message is to them.

On the opening night we have the film Kajacki followed by a Q&A session with Ex-para Stu Pearson and Scott Kyle the actor that played him in the film.
