Welcome

We’re back home!

After two years ’on the road’, the Dunoon Film Festival is once again back home in the Dunoon Burgh Hall and we can’t wait for you to see it! The major refurbishment, now complete, has resulted in a revived and transformed community arts facility; fully accessible, offering a new cafe, beautiful galleries and a warm, bright multi-use Main Hall.

We’ve travelled a long and challenging road but the rewards are countless. We are extremely grateful to all of our many funders, volunteers and Board members for their ongoing support and commitment to our vision.

We are thrilled to be bringing you this fifth film festival, DFF2017, from two great venues – Dunoon Burgh Hall and The Studio Cinema. Please join us for the delights of cinema and all the weekend activity. We hope you have a fantastic time!

About

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.

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.
