Camberwell is to play host to its first Free Film Festival from 14–24 March. Films and film-related events will take place at different venues across the area during the period. The organisers say:
With the idea of linking movie themes with locations in Camberwell, the CFFF aims to screen hidden cinematic gems, unearth old classics, connect locals to their history and place Camberwell on the cultural map of London.
Highlights include a screening of Attack the Block, which filmed many scenes in the Heygate estate, along with a Q&A from one its stars, Leeon Jones; and the film with the most association to the area despite not having anything to do with it, Withnail and I.
There will also be a film quiz at The Bear, short films by local artists at The House Gallery, and tons more. It’s all very exciting.
