Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival: 2 – 6 May 2019

The ninth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival (2 – 6 May 2019) presents 147 moving-image works over five days and across eight programme strands — including features, shorts, installations, performances, special focuses, guest-curated programmes, a symposium, and our much-loved film walk.

Film screenings and Q&As take place in two venues: Heart of Hawick and Unit Four. Our installations take place in Heritage Hub and Textile Towerhouse, and in former shop spaces on Buccleuch Street and High Street.

Tickets for events at Heart of Hawick and Heritage Hub are available here and tickets for events at Unit Four and for the Film Walk are available through the listings pages and via eventbrite here.
