Portobello Film Festival 2017
31 August – 17 SepTember –
Admission Free To All Events




The
22nd annual free Portobello Film and Arts Festival opens at the Westbank bar, 3 – 5 Thorpe Close, London W10 5XL, on Thursday 31 August from 6.30 with films on Mick Jones from the Clash, Banksy at Dismaland, and Iain Sinclair’s London Overground- a mystical walk around London.
The next day (1 September) Portobello Festival celebrates the best arts of where we are based, Notting Dale, with a programme of spoken word, music, and comedy featuring JC 101, Courttia Newland, and Tony Allen in honour of the neighbourhood of Grenfell Tower, at the Maxilla Club, 2 Maxilla Walk, London W106NQ. Also showing On The Ground At Grenfell a powerful film by local people about the tragedy and its aftermath.
NB don’t use satnav for these venues if you are driving as both are directly underneath the Westway.

The Festival continues for the next two weeks with International film shows every evening at The Muse, 269 Portobello Road, W11 1LR, and weekday evening West London and UK movie shows at the Westbank.
Highlights at the Westbank include a screening of The Boyfriend by Ken Russell introduced by his daughter Vicki and Doctors Of Madness frontman Richard Strange.

An art exhibition featuring posters designed for Portobello Film Festival over the years by Blek Le Rat, Ralph Steadman, Pure Evil, Lucy Sparrow, Dotmasters, Andrew Logan, Jamie Hewlett, and Sickboy opens at The Muse on 7 September.

The Festival comes to a climax with the
Golden Heart Trellick Award Ceremony in Tavistock Square, where the Westway crosses Portobello, from 6.30 on Sunday 17 September.
Expect non stop international, UK and London films for 18 days all for free in the heart of countercultural London, Portobello Road and North Kensington.
This year the Festival also remembers the dynamic cinematic history of the area in the brochure and on walls around Portobello with Tom Vague’s Portobello Movie Map.



 

Other film festivals have a man in a tux taking photos of you and handing you a card hoping you'll purchase them at some inflated price. At Portobello photos, by Matthew Buxton, are free and constantly updated on flickr feed. Click here and enjoy the story so far:
