People and Planet Film Festival couldn’t happen without our partners
Community Rail Lancashire
This festival is only possible because of the partnership between Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council’s Environmental Projects & Strategy Team and Community Rail Lancashire. Co-funded between the Designated Community Rail Development Fund of the Association of Community Rail Partnerships and Darwen Town Council.
Darwen Town Council
Co-funders, Darwen Town Council have supported the film festival right from the outset. The council has a long history of supporting high profile events such as Darwen Live, Darwen Pedal Car Grand Prix and Darwen Gala.
Darwen Market Town, the Town Hall / Market recently underwent refurbishment to create 5 traditional shops in the front of the building, restoring it to it’s former state of the 1880’s. The new shops include an Italian deli, traditional sweet shop, barbers and children’s clothing and gifts store. Watch a film and experience some of that Lancashire hospitality.
The centre of the Film Festival, Darwen Library Theatre is less than 5 minute’s walk from the railway station and has fantastic facilities (see gallery) a licensed bar and day time cafe area.
