Portobello Film FestivalCreated in 1996 as a reaction to the state of the British Film industry, the Portobello Film Festival was set up with the aim of providing a platform for exciting new film-makers and to this day gives daring and groundbreaking directors a chance to get their films seen. The programme features around 500 new films split into numerous categories, including art, music movies, documentary and world film, screening films from different countries across the globe. The festival hasn't always had an easy ride and has even found itself without a cinema screen at times but screening in parks, theatres, clubs and bars have all added to the diverse nature of the event. With annual premieres of shorts, documentaries and animations, plus lots of talks and workshops with top film directors, the Portobello Film Festival is an exciting event in any film fanatic's diary. This year, in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the programme will also present movies by local people, offering a platform for local poets, rappers, DJs and musicians.
