Fighting Spirit Film Festival
The UK’s one and only fighting film festival will be in Birmingham on Sunday 28 April, 2019. Fighting Spirit Film Festival is a celebration and screening of martial arts and action movies. Now in its 4th year of bringing together the martial arts and action film fan and film making community, it continues to inspire others to participate in martial arts and/or make films with martial arts and action content.
