The popular Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival celebrates its 10th edition in September 2019, marking this landmark anniversary with an exciting range of films for all ages, screening in unique venues across SE15.

This year’s Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival features 17 events over 10 days, running from Thursday 5 – Sunday 15 September. And there’s a pre-festival film quiz night at the Old Nun’s Head on Sunday 1 September.

Among this year’s highlights are the opening night film at Peckhamplex – the London premiere of The River and the Wall – and the ever popular Nunhead Cemetery outdoor screening on Saturday 7 September with cult black comedy Harold and Maude, which won the public poll at the cemetery open day back in May.

There’s a bike-powered screening with Electric Pedals of Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse, a trip down memory lane with The Glenn Miller Story ¬– complete with a live performance from the South London Jazz Orchestra – and train-based classic The Lady Vanishes in the lovingly restored Old Waiting Room at Peckham Rye station.

The all-day Afrikans on Film Festival is back at the Bussey Building, Steve McQueen’s Widows comes to Peckham Palms, and people can get involved in Super 8 and movie music vinyl nights in local pubs. There’s also an older people's afternoon screening of The King
and I at The Green in Nunhead.

Community workshops have always played an important part of the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival, including those organised by the Women in Film group that grew out of the festival. And this year the Pempeople’s space in the heart of Peckham plays host to a celebration of short animations made by 7 to 25-year-olds.

Programme leaflets are being distributed around the area and details of all the film screenings and activities are available on the festival website and there will be regular updates on Twitter and Facebook.
