Portobello Film FestivalCreated in 1996 as a reaction to the state of the British Film industry, the Portobello Film Festival celebrates its 18th edition in 2014. Set up with the aim of providing a platform for exciting new film-makers the festival gives daring and ground-breaking directors a chance to get their films seen. While the line-up for this year's festival hasn't been confirmed, 2013 featured the world premiere of Phil Strongman's Macolm McLaren Situationist biography, Anarchist, an exhibition at the Louise T Blouin Institute, and 17 days of screenings at Westbourne Studios, and the Portobello Pop Up Cinema under the Westway so you can expect something along those lines. 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.

 

About Westbourne Studios: Under the Westway

Uber-trendy private club and bar set among the design and production offices of a number of West London's hottest creative companies. It's a bit odd having a beer surrounded by glass walls that lead onto offices - although it does make you feel smug and relaxed. More about Westbourne Studios: Under the Westway
