Created in 1996 as a reaction to the unimaginative state of the British Film Industry and a platform for low budget but original and exciting non mainstream movies, the Portobello Film Festival has continued to fly the flag of independent cinema every year since, with no submission fees for filmmakers or entry costs for the audience.

Shane Meadows, Sarah Gavron, and Guy Ritchie screened early works at Portobello.

The Festival also champions Street Art and has exhibited new works by Blek Le Rat, Inkie, Dotmasters, Lucy Sparrow, Pure Evil, School of Banksy, Ralph Steadman, and Mark Jackson - original posters and programme covers by whom are exhibited here.

Plus movies from the legendary 80s & 90s Portobello Pirate TV free TV station featuring The Smiths, RD Laing, Stonehenge, Rip Rig and Panic, Joe Strummer, and Mutoid Waste Company introduced by Portobello Film Festival director Jonathan Barnett.
