A weekend in the country where the only thing you pitch is your tent.
The Quadrangle Film Festival is a grass-roots project launched in 2011, which set out to be a new kind of film event. Bringing together young, emerging and established documentary filmmakers the aim is to create a space where filmmakers can share and discuss projects, be inspired and experiment with new ideas away from commercial and financial pressures.
The idea found its natural home at The Quadrangle- a collection of 19th century farm buildings and fields in Kent that has recently been set up as a Trust to support creative, independent artists, thinkers and environmental education projects. The barns, stables and granary are temporarily converted into cinemas, and the tents in the meadow for discussion spaces, accommodation, food and music.
We believe that there is a need for a gathering space that reminds us of why we feel so passionate about documentary and provides us with support, encouragement and inspiration to make independent and innovative films.
We aim to provide a platform for new films that push the boundaries of what we think documentary should be, as well as forgotten gems that can enrich our filmmaking. It is an opportunity to bring people together to talk openly about their experiences, the creative challenges they face and new ideas.
