Here at Catford Film we are really excited about receiving funding to arrange a fantastic open air cinema event in the heart of our community on Culverley Green in spring 2016.
Ever since the closure of the Catford ABC Cinema, and with no other existing cinemas in the whole of the borough, I have always thought there must be a way to promote film back into the area. As an independent film maker myself, I see the value of film outside of the usual Youtube world and have become determined to make Catford a Film hub, more than it ever was before.
For that reason we have put together a core team to organise this Cinema event. The title of the main film is yet to be decided, but we will select something for the whole family. The event will include a good selection of local artisan mobile food and drink facilities and a mobile bar.
As a taster to this event we held a screening of Cinema Paradiso at the Catford Constitutional Pub on the 9th December, to give everyone a chance to try a few ideas and provide a morale boost going into the Culverley event.
