FilmAtSwinge (International Independent Film Festival at Swindon Fringe) Our third year festival entries are now closed, notification, our "Selected" films is the 21st June.


Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and UK / English Government Legislation we are not able to have a physical screening.  But a secure live on-line screening is planned with a live (Zoom) Awards Ceremony. All details to follow.


Born as part of Swindon Fringe, which is a Theatre, Performing Arts and Music festival now in its 8th year, we are proud to be linked to this great cultural event. Although we are now independent from the Fringe, we work closely with it's team and venues bringing the best of the Arts to Swindon and the surrounding areas.

We're based on the Balcony of the legendary MECA in the heart of the Town Centre Culture & Entertainment district. Swindon MECA has previously been The Regent Cinema, followed by Gaumont & Odeon Cinemas and finally the Meca Bingo Hall before being reborn as MECA Music Entertainment & Cultural Arena.


The MECA is the perfect venue for us with a bar in the auditorium and snacks including hot pizza slices, hotdogs and of course, popcorn. 


Rudi's Bar and Kitchen next door is our meet up venue and will host several events during the festival, so make sure you come to the whole event not just the Gala Awards night.


Talking of Awards, we have many categories and awards given on a gender neutral basis. We are a Diverse and Inclusive Festival.
