The South Social Film Festival supports London’s cultural diversity.

With a philosophy of #ONENIGHT #ONECOUNTRY the organisation creates custom made events connecting indie cinema with world music and regional cuisine. Their main partners are foreign embassies, cultural institutes and BFI-Film London.

On February 2nd – 3rd 2019, the South Social Film Festival will be dedicated entirely to black culture. All the main cultural associations in South London will gather and showcase screenings, workshops, music, dance, debates, crafts and cuisine.

The organisation is scouting for exciting and innovative short and mid-length films, both fiction and documentary, that celebrate Black Culture both in Peckham and in South London specifically but also in London and the UK generally. They will only accept projects filmed in English languages or with English language subtitles.
