As you can probably tell from the weather, Autumn is well and truly on its way, we are starting to get excited about all the lovely autumnal events that are coming up on our calendars. We were discussing our favourite Autumn activities here at The Amazing Blog, and we all agreed that going to the cinema is a firm favourite. Seeing the latest blockbuster is fun, no matter what your age, but it is not really a memory making event. However, that is all set to change! We recently heard about Free Film Festivals and their events that are going on around London, and we just had to tell you all about it.
Free Film Festivals was started in 2010 by a group of friends who wanted to share films, not just with their friends, but their community. It is ‘about showing films in interesting venues and increasing the feel-good factor of people in the community’. Every festival is non-profit and completely run by volunteers, and events are funded by sponsorships within the communities.
From the 5th-15th September, the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival is on and showing many films perfect for every different age group and taste, such as James and the Giant Peach and Edward Scissorhands. They also have a Young Filmmakers Competition Screening to help showcase emerging young talent. If you are a young filmmaker, you can go on the Free Film Festivals website to learn more about submitting your work.
To learn more about the Free Film Festivals and their upcoming events, please visit their website. If you are interested in learning what you can do to help this non-profit organisation, or figuring out how to set up a Free Film Festival in your area, they are available to aid you. This is certainly a wonderful way to bring a community together, young and old alike, and we think this is the perfect way to spend an Autumn evening.
