Saturday 25 March and ‘Back to the Future’ saw the launch of the free West Norwood Film Festival. Over this week cult classics, art house favourites and new releases in a mix of venues across the neighbourhood will be screenings completely free.
The festival will also feature a 48-hour film competition where filmmakers, both aspiring and established, will be invited to create a short film inspired by the local area. The shortlisted films will be screened in a gala on the closing night of the festival and judged by a panel including experts from the BFI.
