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 Cinetopia@hotmail.co.uk.

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 http://www.sponsume.com/project/new-cross-deptford-free-film-festival

New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival

Here are details of your chance to show a short film in the NEW CROSS & DEPTFORD FREE FILM FESTIVAL 2012

The Old Police Station
Friday 27–Sunday 29 April 2012
Enter your film to be screened in the Freedom Cells, a free human rights film event during the New Cross and Deptford FREE FILM FESTIVAL 2012.
The theme for this event is ‘Freedom’ and we are looking for films which run no longer than 15 minutes. The theme can include freedom of expression, prisoners of conscience, political prisoners or simply expressions of what freedom means to you.
We are looking for short films by filmmakers, artists, poets, musicians, students and local residents to be screened throughout the weekend.
The films will be shown free to the public at The Old Police Station in New Cross and presented in the holding cells which we are adapting into small pop-up cinema spaces (www.theoldpolicestation.org).
It is free to submit as many films as you like and they will be screened free to the public.

Free Film Festival for New Cross in 2012?


Telegraph Hill Park and Goldsmiths College are two possible venues for a proposed New Cross Free Film Festival in 2012. Jacqui from the Cafe in the Park and Luke and Simone from Goldsmiths College are keen to hear from anyone who would like to help organise the festival or has idea for other venues. The plan for a Free Film Festival in New Cross follows the success of the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festivals in 2010 and 2011.

Venues such as a cemetery, Peckham Rye Park, a centre for wildlife gardening and a multi-storey car park roof were turned into cinemas for free film screenings which the whole community could enjoy.

If you’d like to get involved in planning the New Cross Free Film Festival, or would just like to find out more, why not come along to an informal meeting at the New Cross House pub, 8pm, Tues 15 November. If you can’t make the meeting but want to get involved, then simply email either Luke (lukejameswallis@hotmail.co.uk) or Jacqui (cafeinthepark@live.co.uk). Hope to see you there.
