Film Events

Sad that there is no permanent cinema in whole borough of Lewisham, but as we've said before, there is a vibrant film culture. As further evidence, here's a couple of new initiatives:


'The Telegraph Hill-based film club, Cinetopia, will shortly be bringing their winning formula to the Hill Station [Kitto Road, SE14]. Our mission is to combine the magic of great movies with the warm conviviality of the pub quiz and add a touch of mystery. Each Cinetopia event includes a quiz based around the theme of the film being shown plus hot food and a bar. To add extra frisson to the experience the audience do not know what the film is until they turn up. In other words, always expect the unexpected. Each evening will feature a film from a particular city and our first destination is Paris. So, get your berets on and come up to the Hill Station for an evening of Gallic cinema and a little je ne sais quoi!

The mini season will start on Friday 18 November at 7.00pm and run monthly until March. Tickets will be sold in advance at £10 and include film, quiz and food. There will also be a fully licensed bar. To book tickets and for further information contact You can also find us on facebook and at our and blog '.

New Cross Free Film Festival

'Would you like to help start a New Cross Free Film Festival in 2012? Then come along to an informal start-up event - Tuesday 15 November, 8pm onwards, New Cross House, 316 New Cross Road, London SE14 6AF. We're teaming up with our friends at Goldsmiths College, the Cafe in Telegraph Hill Park and Deptford Film Club to see if there's interest in starting a New Cross Free Film Festival in 2012. This follows the success of community-run free film festivals in Peckham and Nunhead in 2010 and 2011.

Come along to this initial gathering to find out more about what makes Free Film Festivals so special - and how you could help set up a New Cross Free Film Festival next year. If you can't come but are still interested just email'.
