Film Hub London’s Community Screen Scheme takes cinema across Sydenham
Date posted: 09.07.2014
Sydenham Film Club and Sydenham Arts Festival have teamed up to produce a programme of events for the first time. The project Screen Sydenham: Fragments from a Century of Cinema, was made possible with support from Film Hub London's Community Screen Scheme.
In-keeping with the Festival's theme marking the centenary of the First World War, the programme kicks off with a free screening of All Quiet on the Western Front tomorrow., The collaboration continues until 17 July, with screenings and workshops at venues across Sydenham offering Q&As, discussions, and meatballs!
From Sunset Boulevard to Treacle Jr.
Following on from the very special screening of All Quiet on the Western Front at Sydenham's German Church Bonhoeffer Kirche, other highlights include Lady and the Tramp in Italian restaurant Trattoria Raffaele and a rare showing of Ingmar Bergman's only foray into horror, Hour of the Wolf.
Sunday sees a free workshop for 12-19 year-olds interested in learning about filmmaking, film programming or film theory; while screenings at Grove Centre Church come with cabaret-style seating and drinks, and the closing night offers locally-filmed Treacle Jr., followed by a director Q&A.
