The Camberwell Film Festival is taking its place from 15-25 March in locations across Camberwell that include JazzLive at The Crypt, William Booth College, The Flying Dutchman, King’s College (Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience) and many more.

Free Film Festivals started with a screening in Peckham and Nunhead in South East London in 2010 and has since spread across the capital, and now into Glasgow. The festivals are run entirely by volunteers with support from other festivals for the projection equipment. With hopes to bring individuals together to explore places they have never been and films they have yet to see, the 12 festivals run each month of the year. Other locations to feature Free Film Festival include Guildford, Streatham, Beckenham, Ealing and more.
