The 30-minute piece, entitled Aspects of Chilham, is about the small village between Ashford and Canterbury, and its famous castle.
It was written by Michael Peters, of Sittingbourne, an expert on the building, who narrates and stars in the film.

Photo animation is supplied by Sittingbourne historian Colin Harvey, who is also the editor and put the finishing touches to the project.
Husband and wife Denis and Kathleen Ratcliffe, who live near Chilham, and their friend Alan Baker produced and directed the documentary together.
“It deals with the changes in the village of Chilham, which is a beautiful little place from its inception and, of course, its most famous landmark which is the castle itself" - historian Colin Harvey
Mr Harvey said: “It deals with the changes in the village of Chilham, which is a beautiful little place from its inception and, of course, its most famous landmark which is the castle itself.
“It shows all the changes at the place over 300, 400 years and names and shows all the various owners of the place.”
The picture, which began two-and-a-half years ago, will have its premiere during the Swale Film Festival on Friday, September 6, at the Avenue Theatre, Central Avenue, Sittingbourne, at 5pm.
The showcase is being partly sponsored by the KM Group.
