Portobello Film Festival 2020 takes place at The Muse 269 Portobello Road W11 1LR between 6pm and 10pm most evenings from 3 - 20 September.
This year the Festival will have an Eastern European feel to it, showcasing films from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania, as well as the usual selection from Germany, Spain, and Belgium, and two nights of London/UK films. The Award Ceremony will be on Sunday 20 September at the Muse.
An exhibition of Festival artworks by the likes of Blek Le Rat, Dotmasters, Andrew Logan, Sickboy, Joe Rush, Lucy Sparrow and Pure Evil will be on display from 3 – 13 September.
We are proud of delivering this free film festival in the heart of UK counterculture for 25 years now. It’s a pity the milestone has been tarnished by the Coronavirus outbreak but the team were keen, right from the start, to put on a living live festival if it was possible.
So due to Covid restrictions, attendance numbers will have to be limited, and 1hr slots booked in advance on eventbrite - details to follow. The Festival will still be free but social distancing seating and facemasks (supplied at venue) will be necessary. There will be a thermometer gun at the door. Surfaces will be cleaned/sanitised regularly and the ventilation/air con will be in operation.
Thank you for your cooperation in these strange times!
A Greatest Hits programme will be broadcast later online, along with a short season on London Live TV in October.
So, due to plague sorry, entry will be limited to advance booking only. These conditions apply to filmmakers as well as public. Free tickets for one hour slots at this year’s Festival can be obtained here.
Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
