The 2020 Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival, our eleventh, took place between the 3rd to 13th September with a mostly online programme with a strong local flavour.
The festival opened with a special PNFFF edition of South East Salon discussing community cinema in Peckham & Nunhead & beyond. Watch this if you want to know what our festival is all about! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWXRyhwcU4k
Lots of lively discussions and Q&As were recorded around the films we screened and you can see them here.
Women in Film showed an animation developed in a local workshop with the creators taking part in a discussion along with Terry Wragg from Leeds Animation, whose They Call Us Maids was also screened, and women from Justice for Domestic Workers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSnul_rUwGg
DJ Minim made us all groove to a fantastic set with movie themed music and video projections on our DJ film night.
Children who took part in an online animation with Rainbow Collective produced this wonderful film about their favourite film characters on the loose in Peckham and Nunhead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWp5oMghUEk
An online screening of Rafiki took place in collaboration with Peckham Palms.
There was a live screening of Get On Up at the Copleston Centre and families had the opportunity to see Pinocchio at Peckhamplex. A film about Nunhead’s own Elvis was premiered at The Green who also hosted One Bum Cinema – the ultimate in socially distanced viewing!
We’ll be back in September 2021 with what we hope will be a festival where we can bring our community together in person again. Meanwhile we’re proud to have been able to put together a 2020 festival that reached out to Peckham and Nunhead and on into the wider world!
