About Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival

  • Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival is an international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. Submissions of artists’ and experimental film from any part of the world are welcome – we celebrate a diverse range of works: the visually experimental, quietly poetic, formally radical, psycho-geographical, politically activist, culturally subversive, psycho-spiritual, the alchemically volatile, the underground and the bizarre. Conventional or commercial-style narrative dramas, animations and documentaries are less likely to be successful – unless they are truly original in form and content.
  • Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is working towards its ninth edition. It is a not for profit venture, run by Alchemy Film & Arts. Alchemy Film & Arts is a registered Scottish charity (no. SC042142).
  • The next festival will take place over five days, 2-6 May 2019, in Hawick, in the Scottish Borders region of Scotland.
  • Our postal address is: Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, 39-41a High St, Hawick, Roxburghshire, TD9 9BU, Scotland, UK
