1st Nov 2022 - 6th Nov 2022
ASFF19 Launch Small 111

Welcome to York's very own film festival, which takes place every November.

There are over 400 films to choose from, and for the past 12 years Aesthetica has welcomed international audiences to York – connecting communities from across the world to share in the enjoyment of independent film. You can see laugh-out-loud comedies, award-winning dramas, thrillers, animation, family friendly and documentaries. The film festival is a window to the world, where audiences can engage with global stories.

Beyond film screenings, there is a stellar programme of industry masterclasses that cut to the heart of what it means to make film. Previous editions of the festival have welcomed speakers from Aardman, BBC, Film4 and Studiocanal, as well as BAFTA- and Oscar-winners like Dame Judi Dench, Asif Kapadia, Sally Potter and Maxine Peake.

This year we are launching a new way for York residents to get involved. It's called York Days. This is your opportunity to attend the festival, soak up as many films as you can, and join in our award-winning masterclasses and workshops.

  • York Days will take place on Tuesday 1 November, Wednesday 2 November and Sunday 6 November.
  • You will have access to all screenings, masterclasses, VR Lab and workshops with your Aesthetica Festival Pass.
  • Use your York Card to Save 50% on select days.
  • You must have a valid York Card to be eligible.
  • Please check the dates of the York Days to ensure that you are attending the correct day to receive your discount.
  • Book your Film Festival Tickets or in person at City Screen from 1 November.
