Whitley Bay Film Festival


Whitley Bay Film Festival was established in 2010 by Primate Productions and local film enthusiasts. An early event inoved a screening of Jaws on the local beach, since then the voluntary-led Festival has grown and now delivers a celebrated annual programme of films. The patron of the Festival is Ian La Frenais, the film and screen writer for The Likely lads and Auf Wiedersehen Pet. Roger Daltrey was a guest in 2015 for a special 40th anniversary screening of Tommy.
