Charlton and Woolwich Free Film Festival
September 8 @ 7:00 pm – September 16 @ 10:30 pm
A free open-air showing of Dungeons and Dragons: Honour Among Thieves in the historic setting of St George’s Garrison Church in Woolwich marks the grand opening of the eight edition of the Charlton and Woolwich Free Film Festival on Saturday 9th September.
The nine-day festival programme will see eight different films shown for free at venues across Charlton, Plumstead, Shooters Hill and Woolwich including comedy (Gregory’s Girl), the lives of refugees (Limbo) and even a film about putting on a film festival (Talking About Trees). Charlton Manor School is the venue for a regular festival favourite; a screening about the Second World War (Fires Were Started), with a talk from military historian Clive Harris – the school was a fire station during WW2.
Shrewsbury House will be showing two films – Ice Cold in Alex on Monday 11th and, to tie in with the Woolwich Carnival on Saturday 16th, they’ll also be screening the animated film, Rio, at 4.30pm on the day before (Friday 15th). A new venue this year is The Lord Herbert pub in Plumstead where we’ll be showing the documentary White Riot on Thursday 14th.
Keep an eye on the festival website for later additions to the festival programme. Most screenings are subtitled and many are in wheelchair-accessible venues (full details for each screening on the website). All events are free, no ticket required, just turn up.
