Alchemy Film And Moving Image Festival

The Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival takes place in Hawick each year. This year the festival will run from Thursday 2nd to Monday 6th March. This event attracts independent film makers, artists, designers and directors from all around the world to Hawick.

The films and art installations are shown in a variety of venues around the town. This year Alchemy have offered to provide a guided tour of the art installations and to organise a joint seminar, with pupils from Hawick High and Earlston High School, to discuss film-making. The tour will take place on Friday 3rd March, from 9am to 1pm. If any S5 or S6 pupils are interested in a career in the media, film and television or would just like to visit the exhibits and find out more about the festival, please give your name to Mr Frankland by Wednesday 15th February.
