The Herne Hill Free Film Festival is coming back to South London in 2018 with 21 free films this May, across a range of venues in SE24. The festival runs from 1st May to 1st June with a programme that includes some of the biggest and most critically acclaimed films from the past year.
Highlights of the festival include the Oscar nominated Loving Vincent at The Lido Café, with a QandA session with the film’s producers; Oscar winners, Get Out and Coco; the Short Film Night at The Prince Regent, and the 48 Hour Film Challenge will also be encouraging budding directors to pop their filmmaking cherry over the first bank holiday in May
The Herne Hill Free Film Festival then closes its doors on 1 June with a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Being Blacker at The Railway Tavern, featuring a Q&A with director, cinematographer and producer Molly Dineen and a wrap party at the venue’s regular reggae, ska, funk and soul night.
This year the Herne Hill Free Film Festival is pleased to be partnering with the Norwood and Brixton Foodbank. Donations of food will be gratefully received at all screenings, and collections taken at every film will also be donated, so local people can access the emergency food and support they need.
