The Anarchic Amusement Film Festival takes place Gainsborough this weekend

Anarchic Amusement is a British Independent film festival that will be held at Trinity Arts Centre.

Supported by Film Hub Central East, part of the BFI UK-wide Audience Network, Lincolnshire One Venues Young People’s Programme (LOVYPP) has worked with a group of young programmers (aged 12-25) called Little Trinitys in the area, over the past five months, to plan and create a festival of enjoyable films and wraparound activities.

The festival intertwines the themes of comedy and courage for all senses of humour with films that reflect that ideology.
