Who We Are

About Us

The Beatles Film Festival (The Festival) is a touring film festival featuring a revolving list of high-quality documentaries that highlight the musical, cultural, social and political influence of the Fab Four in the context of the turbulent 1960’s. In addition to the presentation of the films, The Festival will also include an exhibition of Beatles memorabilia, guest personalities and a showcase of merchandise for sale. It is designed for both 1-day/2-screen and 2-day/3-screen formats. All films are in digital download (DD) or Digital Cinema Package (DCP) format and the festival has exclusive rights to publicly exhibit them. Most importantly, the Festival is programmed by a group of Beatles devotees who are dedicated to curating the best films we can find. If you would like to host us in your city, please contact a local cinema who is as enthusiastic as you are and ask them if they are interested. If so, please let us know the details and we’ll be there!
