Weekend Pass Dunoon Film Festival

Dunoon Film Festival 

A special weekend of films for everyone.

Coming soon November 2024.

Make sure to check back and grab a limited-edition Festival Pass for just £15 to help you enjoy everything you want to see over the three days.


We are grateful for the continued support of the team here at Dunoon Burgh Hall and our partners at The Studio Cinema.  This year we are also delighted to join forces with Dunoon Community Development Trust to present some special screenings exploring climate action and with Cycling UK Dunoon Bothy to celebrate the joys of cycling. Pupils from Dunoon Grammar School Business & Technology classes will be taking on the challenge of organising and marketing special screenings for their primary school friends, as they do every year for DFF and our friends at Uig Hall in Rashfield. 

We love to bring varied and interesting films to our audiences here in Dunoon and we look forward to seeing you all at DFF24.

Buy tickets online

Unless stated otherwise in the programme listing, all tickets are £5.

When booking tickets online, you will receive a ticket confirmation by email. Please show this at the screening venue. You are not required to print anything. Online ticket sales will close three hours before each screening, after which tickets will only be available from the screening venue.

Buy tickets in person.

You can buy tickets in person at Dunoon Burgh Hall Café between 10 am and 4 pm, Wednesdays to Sundays.

During the festival weekend, the box office will be open from 10 am until the last film begins.

These can be purchased online or in person at Dunoon Burgh Hall Cafe. You can also buy tickets from the Studio Cinema during the festival before each film starts.


Each film in the programme has a certificate from U (Universal) to 18 (over 18s only). It is a legal requirement to observe this certification. PG indicates Parental Guidance – PG films are not suitable for children under eight years of age. A 12A certificate requires that an adult accompanies children under 12.

Any film not already certificated by the British Board of Film Classification has been given a suggested certificate, which we will treat as legally binding.


By Car

The A82 and A83 connects Glasgow and Inveraray via the Rest and Be Thankful pass. A few miles west of the pass (or east if you’re coming from Inveraray), turn south onto the A815. Alternatively take the M8 west from Glasgow towards Gourock, where you can catch a ferry to Dunoon.

By Ferry

Regular services from Gourock are run by Western Ferries for cars and Argyll Ferries for foot passengers.

By Train

A regular Scotrail service from Glasgow Central serves Gourock. The train station is next to the Argyll Ferries terminal, and it’s possible to buy a joint train and ferry ticket.

By Bus

West Coast Motors provide regular services to the area.
