High Peak Independent Film Festival

The High Peak Independent Film Festival is a non-for-profit film festival that celebrates shorts and feature films from filmmakers, of all ages, around the world. We aim to showcase the best of up and coming, independent filmmakers across four fantastic days. Our aim is to provide a programme which showcases the very best of international and national independent film.

New Mills is a beautiful town, situated in the High Peak, north of England. It's 45 minutes away from the thriving city of Manchester and easily accessible by all public transport. The historic town lies at the confluence of the rivers Goyt and Sett, close to the border of Cheshire. The town stands above the Torrs, a 70 feet (21 m) deep gorge, cut through Woodhead Hill Sandstone of the Carboniferous period. It is on the north-western edge of the Peak District, England's first national park. It has a population of approximately 10,000.

Situated in the town is the fantastic, and very famous, Swizzles Matlow! Yes, you'll know them for their Love Hearts, Rainbow Drops and Double Dip (and more!).

In our inaugural year, we showcased 51 films and 4 events across three and a half days at New Mills Art Theatre and across the town of New Mills. In our second year, we aim to grow and have more events.
