In spring 2017 Alchemy Film & Arts moved into a new office and exhibition space on Hawick High Street. At our new venue we’ll be hosting a year-round programme of exhibitions, events, workshops, meetings, featuring a range of local, national and international artists. During the festival, we use it as an installation venue, while the festival hub is the auditorium at Heart of Hawick.



Heart of Hawick
Hawick TD9 0AE

There are several additional venues for artists’ moving image installations around the town. Supplementary information will be available on arrival at the box office, there’s a map at the bottom of the page, and you can also see it here.

The Heritage Hub, part of Heart of Hawick will be our Screening Room for the 2018 festival. It’s just across the courtyard from Heart of Hawick.

Once again, we’re going to be using the iconic Hawick venue that has a swimming pool hiding underneath the wooden floor; the Auld Baths.

The Moving Image Makers Collective will be showing their programme at Hawick Film and Video Group‘s headquarters in Croft Street.
