Welcome to The Tea Break Film Festival, here we celebrate short films which are refreshing and restful, engaged and drifting. From the ancient Japanese tea ceremony to the British tea-cosy, the tea break is a time for reflection or chat. A time to be interested or switch off. A time to relax by focusing.

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Tea Break Film Festival will take place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd of July, the venue is the Mick Ronson’s Cafe in Queen’s Gardens, Hull as part of the Yum Food Festival. Information about all that is happening is available on our Facebook page.

Have a break, have a Tea Break…
