Films will be shown at venues across the borough over three days starting on Friday, September 19.
The Sheerness Times Guardian and Sittingbourne News Extra will once again be stepping in as sponsors, along with the Kent Film Office, the British Film Institute, Swale council and AmicusHorizon.
One of the venues that will definitely be hosting again this year will be the Avenue Theatre, Central Avenue, Sittingbourne.
Now in its sixth year, the borough’s very own version of Cannes will once again have the Kent Film Awards running alongside it.
Last year’s winners went on a trip to Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, where the James Bond films are made, as a prize.
Frankie and Louis Binns of Whitstable came first in the 10-15-year old category, while Robert Ashton from Maidstone topped the 16-21 category.
Film festival assistant Helen Stock said: “Our trip to Pinewood was a great success. The winners really enjoyed it and learned a lot about making a big budget movie.
“The outdoor Paddock Tank where they film water scenes in front of a blue screen was particularly impressive.
“We also visited the 6m deep indoor water tank, the 007 Bond Stage, a TV studio set and the post-production studio. And we were able to visit the on-site cinema where directors go to view their footage before it is edited.”
Festival director Ken Rowles said he felt “privileged” to have the continued support of Pinewood studios.
