Streatham could soon be joining the London towns that have hosted film festivals under the Free Film Festivals banner. STREATHAM FREE FILM FESTIVAL aims to take place 14-20 September 2015. If you live locally, you can attend the next festival PLANNING MEETING on Tuesday 13 July and help to make it happen.
Also running this year will be the PECKHAM & NUNHEAD FREE FILM FESTIVAL (3-13 September), the second SOUTH NORWOOD & THORNTON HEATH FREE FILM FESTIVAL. (9-18 October) and the second LONDON FIELDS FREE FILM FESTIVAL (23-31 October).
Free Film Festivals are volunteer-led community festivals which bring people together to enjoy a great movie and celebrate their local area too. It's about increasing the 'feel good' factor of people in the community by providing free and enjoyable events in popular public spaces, including outdoor screenings.
As well as free film screenings, Free Film Festivals can also include filmmaking workshops, such as animation sessions for children - to help people gain new skills and interests.
They are entirely not-for-profit and run by volunteers. Events are funded thanks to our partnerships with the community organisations and other supporters.
