Host a Filmmaker

We’re on the lookout for Hawick residents who might have a room to spare for one of our visiting filmmakers in May! Each year we host around 50 filmmakers from across the world, who are coming to Hawick to present their work at the festival.

All they’ll need is a comfortable place to stay – most meals during the festival are organised in advance by the team. If you have a spare room, and would like to host a filmmaker for the festival (some filmmakers will be around for the week before the festival, too), please let us know! The festival runs 2-6 May 2019.

To register your interest, please complete the form below. You’ll receive an email confirmation shortly after you press send. Please email if you have any questions.

You can read more about other volunteering opportunities with Alchemy here.

2019 Room for a Filmmaker expression of interest
Where are you based in Hawick? On the High Street, up the terraces, etc!
What accommodation would you be able to offer to our visiting filmmakers?
We'll be in touch with you shortly, but if there's anything else you'd like to let us know in the meantime, please put it here! If there are any dates you can't do, we can probably work around that, so please tell us here.
