Catford Film are a community group screening monthly events locally, and have ambitions to expand their events calendar with Catfords first free film festival. The actual event will last for several days, with an opening and closing gala screening, and several locally hosted screenings at open spaces, bars and restaurants in-between.
There are many exciting opportunities to screen cult films, independent shorts, and blockbuster favourites to our diverse community, and celebrate our differences through a common interest in film.
Lets help create a perception that Catford is an area of film initiatives. Lets take the best of film projects from other areas, and make them happen here where we live. Lets see roof top cinema on the multi-storey car park, screenings under railway arches, on the Broadway, under the Cat, pubs, parks, immersive interactive events etc. The opportunities are endless, and exciting. We have thought through the logistics, now lets make it happen.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We believe film creates a buzz where ever it happens, either through film screenings or film making. This project will promote our area as a creative hub of artistic initiatives. We want to make Catford as a place that encourages film projects, and build relationships with like minded groups and individuals to help create bigger and better events. The film festival is one of a few events we have planned this year. We will also be hosting a Singalong screening of Grease in May on Culverley Green SE6. We have already secured 75% funding for the Grease screening from the Catford South Assembly. However there is a shortfall in the budget so are also asking for top up funding through this project to help complete the funding for that additional and exciting evening for our community.
We believe that our ethnically diverse community will benefit through the cohesion that film brings, allowing people of different backgrounds to share moments together through an interest in film.
Steps to get it done:
2016 is an exciting year for Catford Film. We sincerely hope our community will support our efforts, and help us to deliver some really exciting film events. Our long term vision is to provide a varied selection of film screenings, and with your support hope to eventually find a permanent home for Catford Film.
We want to build on our core monthly screenings, to add more and more short film events to support independent film makers, and in the future provide film workshops, to encourage more interest in film making.
We want to create a film hub in our area, starting with a fantastic free film festival to be inclusive to our whole community.
