NXDFFF Free Films! 27.04.12 to 06.05.12

As you draw breath after the whirlwind of the Telegraph Hill Festival, get ready for the next social-cultural neighbourhood extravaganza… The first local Free Film Festival starts soon and includes events at the Hill Station, Common Growth and New Cross Learning.

NXDFFF full event programme at www.freefilmfestivals.orgFor more information contact

From Friday 27 April to Sunday 6 May the NXDFFF will be screening films in some very unusual places including two parks, an adventure playground, the walls of the tiny white-tiled prison cells at Deptford Old Police Station and from a 40ft lorry turned mobile cinema. Events include bike-powered open-air family screenings, film-based discussions on topics of local/global concern, and screenings of local filmmakers work. The New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival is organised and run entirely by volunteers with guidance and support from the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festivals group. If you would like to support us please make a donation at
