A Second Song For Notting Dale could be the name for the 23rd Portobello Film & Arts Festival.

After the Grenfell tragedy – a stone’s throw from our office – last year’s Song For Notting Dale was a great success for the local community, and we were keen to expand it in 2018 with a season of shows at the Maxilla featuring our Launch Party, our Awards Ceremony, an afternoon of family movies under the Westway in conjunction with the Tavistock Festival and an animation workshop for local kids, complimented by Tom Vague’s local history in the brochure: the Lancaster West Side Story.

Like at all Portobello events, admission is free and open to all.

Other highlights this year include a non stop programme every night at The Muse of the latest in International Cinema, and a showcase for the best in current UK film at the Westbank Gallery & Bar. You’ll see tomorrow’s films today and movies not to be seen anywhere else.

We pay a Tribute to Lepke DBC who DJ’d at many Portobello shows, at Subterania, and Portobello Radio present Julian Temple introducing local movie Absolute Beginners at the old Pop Up Cinema, hopefully available again for the whole Festival next year!
Art at The Muse stars the Salvador Dali Of Rave Junior Tomlin, Dr D and Chu otherwise known as Worship The Ground – this year’s cover and poster designers – and the legendary Sickboy fresh from a successful San Francisco expo.
The centre pages of the brochure remember our film art wall on Portobello Rd between Golborne and Oxford Gdns about the pioneering, eccentric, radical, good humoured style of mainly North Kensington film that is celebrated at your annual free post-Carnival Festival.

Enjoy the “Frontline of film” at the Portobello Film Festival 2018.
