Five years since its inception, the Portobello Film & Video Festival is firmly established as a forum for cinematic indulgence of the most encouraging variety.

The festival's twelve days of open access screenings and multi-media mash ups featuring more than 300 new industry renegade and low-to-no-budget short films, underground documentaries, music promos, local movies, feature premieres and favourites from past years at venues across W10.

Attracting an audience in excess of 15,000 revellers and extensive media coverage, the festival is looking forward to staging its biggest and best event so far in August 2000.

Directors who have had initial screenings at the Portobello Film Festival include: Guy Ritchie - The Hard Case (1996), Sara Sugerman Valley Girls (1997) and Shane Meadows The Datsun Connection (1998). These directors have all gone on to make top features.

We also present classic films by or about people living in the Portobello/Ladbroke Grove area; 'Performance' and 'Hotel Paradiso' by Nicolas Roeg, The Clash's seminal punk movie - Westway to the World directed by Don Letts, The Punk by Mike Sarne and 'Respect' by Oz Hutchins.

Guest speakers/poets have included: Michael Winner, Jock Scott and Selma Saliva. In the Moving Sounds section, VJs Phil Smith (Scala), Hexstatic (Ninja Tune) and Giles Thacker (The Orb) have also presented their latest work. The festival showcases a broad range of talent. Entry is free and all films submitted are shown, guaranteeing exposure to new talent.
