Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is the flagship annual event of Alchemy Film & Arts. Founded in 2010 as a three-day event featuring 33 films, it has grown to be one of the leading festivals of experimental film and artists’ moving image.

Change in programme due to Covid-19:

Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is moving to an exclusively digital platform this year: Alchemy Live

Alchemy Live is, to begin with, two things. It is the tenth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, the flagship event of Alchemy Film & Arts. And it is the first exclusively digital iteration of said festival: a one-off live stream taking place across three days and bringing the best in international experimental film – curated in Hawick, Scotland’s film town – to the comfort of homes the world over. For free.

Alchemy Live presents 15 film programmes, including ten curated shorts screenings, three new ‘spotlight’ slots, and two features. There will also be at least one DJ set. Each of the programmes will screen once, viewable in real time on this webpage – as in the cinema, or like a riveting, end-of-days news bulletin on an old-fashioned analogue telly.
