ID Fest is QUAD’s own film festival, taking place over four days in May. The festival includes screenings, previews, events, professional practice, exhibitions and more. ID Fest 2012 has something for everyone, from film fans to filmmakers, guaranteed to inspired and entertain in equal measure. QUAD is Derby's centre for art and film.


The theme of heroes has been a staple part of cinema throughout its long and varied history. Whether it is the super heroics of costumed heroes or simple acts of heroism, film has revelled in the triumphs and wallowed in the misery of defeat.

ID fest will explore the many facets of heroism, from the purity of superheroes or the dark corridors that anti-heroes walk. ID Fest will be playing in the margins searching out the grandest gestures to the smallest acts of heroism.

Special guests include director Mike Hodges and actor Brian Blessed, with a very special directing actors workshop featuring actor/director Paddy Considine.
