Watersprite’s atmosphere is
“extraordinary”… “fantastic”
— David Yates

Mission Statement

Watersprite discovers and champions emerging filmmakers from around the world. The festival inspires and empowers young film talent, providing an inclusive space which nurtures future award-winning partnerships.

Why we do what we do

Watersprite seeks to be of benefit to the public, especially young people, both at home and internationally. The festival has two principal aims:

To support learning and foster creative collaboration in the context of film, television and other art forms of the moving image.

To promote the arts by organising and running the Watersprite Film Festival as well as other public screenings and events, therefore providing opportunities to inspire audiences and raise awareness about film and other related art forms.
