World cinema at Storyhouse

For the third year Storyhouse is delighted to host the annual Chester International Film Festival presented by Chester Film Society. A remarkable global selection of recent films that share stories and experiences from an array of countries.

Now in its 7th year, the Chester Animation Festival is a competition showcasing international animation following a call for submissions from talented filmmakers worldwide. We will present the final selection back to back in one showing on Sunday 15 March. The audience will then decide who will win the Audience prize for 2020. 

These films will not have general adverts or trailers – an introduction will precede each film which will start at the advertised time.
