Organised by West Side Cinema, this is an annual celebration of film, running across islands and parishes and featuring a diverse range of films and events.

Taking place in November each year, the festival welcomes Scotland’s mobile touring cinema The Screen Machine, bringing with it the latest blockbusters and new releases to the islands over 14 days. There are four regular screen venues – Phoenix Cinema, West Side Cinema, Gable End Theatre and Screen in the Square – and other events take place in community cinemas and in various pop up venues across the breadth of Orkney.

We hope to provide something for everyone and hope that you, the audience, enjoy the festival wherever and whenever you can make it.
