The Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust is thrilled to present this sixth annual Dunoon Film Festival which will take place in the Dunoon Burgh Hall as well as The Studio Cinema, the Pier building, local schools and communities.

We look forward to you enjoying the enchantment of cinema and the delights of the weekend. Have a marvellous time!

Since its refurbishment, the Hall has offered remarkable exhibitions, concerts, theatre productions and workshops with the galleries, Main Hall and Café in full swing.

It is a true illustration of collaboration, of which the DFF is a shining example – combining the very best of creative exploration and harnessing local spirit. To our many sponsors, volunteers and visitors – a special thank you for your tireless support.

The historic B listed Dunoon Burgh Hall is now a fully accessible venue for exhibitions, performances and gatherings. Alongside a gallery and theatre, the venue offers creative workshop space, a garden and a cafe.

​ The restoration of Dunoon Burgh Hall is an inspiring story of a small Scottish community coming together to preserve it's rich cultural heritage. The building was rescued from demolition by the community, who worked with the John McAslan Family Trust to purchase it from Fyne Homes housing association in 2008 for a token £1.

The proposed Burgh Hall

Since then The Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust and staff have worked to raise investment to restore the building. It reopened in June 2017 with an exciting program of activities and events.
