Slow Films

Browse our collection of Slow films showing what we mean by Slow holidays, the work that goes on behind the scenes to make them, the sort of destinations we seek out, and the kind of encounters you may have with local people and producers while exploring the Slow Lane.

What is Slow?

Slow is not ‘stop’.
Slow is not Old. Inactive. Nor frustrating.
Slow is a position. A state of mind.
Slow is looking differently at the world.
Seeing things, people, landscapes – from a new perspective.
Slow is a place.
Slow is where time doesn’t stand still – it expands. Slowly.
Where you see more by slowing down.
Immersing yourself into local life.
Meeting local people.
Eating local food. Enjoying local hospitality.
Exploring some of Europe’s most beautiful countryside.
And feeling energised. Revitalised. Refreshed.
