Robin Williams

Help us pay tribute to Robin Williams

Hi everyone. Regular visitors to our pages will know we were knocked for six with the recent and tragic passing of Robin Williams.

Help Bedford Film Festival become a box office smash

It’s been a hectic three months, since first getting together, as we’ve discussed themes, ideas, venues, sponsors, artwork, websites, workshops, guests and oh, yeah, films. When the idea of a film festival […]

It’s only a few days to go until Bedford Film Festival host the Bedford public premier of ‘Searching for Sugar Man’ as part of Bedfringe. To say we are excited is an understatement.

Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard and her starring role in Bedford Film Festival

French actress Marion Cotillard may never know how much of a catalyst she was for getting Bedford Film Festival into a working idea. We’d often wondered why the film variety in Bedford was so poor. We’re not all film fanatics or experts and we controversially enjoy Hollywood blockbusters but we’d also like to see a variety of genres. We’d […]
