A creative platform to showcase local and international talent.




COVID-19 statement – Bute Street Film Festival


It is with great regret that, due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and following Government’s updated advice on 16th March, we have taken the decision to postpone Bute Street Film Festival taking place on April 2nd-4th.


Our priority is the health of our staff and of our audiences at Bute Street.


Our team worked incredibly hard on developing our programme, and the decision to postpone has not been taken lightly, particularly because of the financial implications on us.


Please be assured that all ticket holders for this cancelled event have the option to get a refund, however by not requesting a refund you would be making an exceptionally generous and much appreciated charitable donation to the Bute Street Film Festival during these unprecedented times.


We will be rescheduling this event and showcasing all artists that have been shortlisted for April’s festival. We will be posting updates regularly on the situation on our social media platforms and look forward to welcoming you back to the Bute Street soon.

We are Bute Street and we want to put our home town on the map!


My name is Benjamin Cyrus- Clark and I am the Director of Bute Street Art Festival. Like many creatives in Luton, I have a strong belief in our creative and cultural crowd.

Bute Street was founded to create a platform to recognise and award local and international talents from the Film, Art and Musical backgrounds.  

Across the year we also work with the British Film Institute to host educational Film based workshops.
