Friday 20 - Sunday 22 March 2020

This is the fifth edition of the Strangelove Festival, dedicated to promoting experimental, innovative film and art. Artistic director Terry Smith has invited composer, John Woolrich, to be this year's guest curator.

The festival theme is STOP LOOK LISTEN WALK and will focus on artists and film makers using animation, music and dance.

We will show a new film, Ghosts and Whispers, by the Brothers Quay, synchronised with live music. The Quays will be here in Folkestone to talk about their work and give a masterclass on film animation.

There will be be a close-up on British animator Paul Bush, works by international artists and programmes drawn from an open call. 

The festival includes exhibitions and talks and there will also be the return of Secret Strangelove with a series of unusual interventions throughout Folkestone.
