World cinema at Storyhouse

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

All screenings will be preceded by two short films as part of the International Animation Festival – a competition to find the best in animation worldwide.

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