the

festival

The Fisheye Film Festival began in 2015, as a community film festival centred around High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. Named after the wide-angle lens, the festival puts participants at the centre of the all-round view, with eyes wide open to the world, to the new and to the future.

Now in its 3rd year, the Fisheye Film Festival has expanded its programme and is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network to bring a wider range of films to a broader audience.

Having successfully run an international competition last year, the festival is once again supporting national and international filmmakers with the Fisheye International Short Film Competition. Click on the link below to see the competition winners for 2017!
