Ever been to see a film on top of a multi storey car park? How about in a cemetery, or an Olympic velodrome? Well now is your chance.
As Peckham and Brixton pick up the pieces from the recent riots, the full schedule of the 2011 Free Film Festivals has been announced today, proving community spirit is alive and well across south-east London.
Local people have arranged an eclectic and exciting selection of films and venues to choose from. The twenty films and film related events – all entirely free to attend – are spread across Peckham, Nunhead, Herne Hill and Brixton, and include bike-powered films, walking tours of lost cinemas, children’s films and a collection of stories from Uganda.
The festivals, being held between 8 and 18 September, are organised entirely on a voluntary basis by a small group of dedicated local residents. The ethos of the festivals is to provide a wide range of films to attract as wide an audience as possible. They are entirely not-for-profit and events are funded thanks to partnerships with community organisations and other supporters.
Highlights will include Flash Gordon and Safety Last on Peckham Rye, Battleship Potemkim on the roof of Peckham multi-storey car park, Baraka at the Centre for Wildlife gardening, and Breaking Away at the Herne Hill Velodrome.
