Peckham and Nunhead will once again be hosting their annual Free Film Festival, which takes place 3 - 13 September 2015. South London is becoming quite the hotbed of film clubs, societies and festivals, with many events free throughout the year.
The festival, now in its sixth year, will include nearly 30 film screenings and events at locations across Peckham and Nunhead, South London, including parks, pubs, churches, community centres, cafes, a cemetery and a waste management facility.
Every event is free and the whole festival is organised by local volunteers. The full programme is at www.freefilmfestivals.org with highlights including:
