Welcome to the 28th Portobello Film & Art Festival which runs every day from 31 August - 17 September. Entry to all events is free.
The majority of the Festival takes place from 1 - 16 September at The Muse, 269 Portobello Road with a changing programme of UK, West London, and International premieres and plus rare archive films on the likes of Lucian Freud, David Hockney and Damian Hirst.
The Festival opens on 31 August at The Gate Picturehouse, Notting Hill Gate, with Terry Gilliam in person introducing Brazil as a tribute to his friend the great actor Ian Holm. The Festival closes on 17 September at The Gate with the Golden Trellick awards ceremony for some of our favourite films. That evening will also feature A Brief History Of Portobello Film Festival movie with early clips from Sarah Gavron, David Bowie, Shane Meadows, Sinead O’Connor, Andrew Logan, John Malkovich, Anita Pallenberg, and Shane McGowran. Tickets for the Gate Picturehouse can be booked free on their website.
Sophie De Stempel, an assistant to Freud, shows her paintings at The Muse for the duration of the festival alongside collages by Members & Fad Gadget drummer Nick Cash. Sophie has also designed individual, handcrafted artworks for this year's Golden Trellick Awards Ceremony.
Portobello Festival is proud of our 28 year history as a cutting edge free entry arts festival complimenting Carnival and the flea market as UK's top countercultural hub.
