New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival 2016

So many great films to see for free in fine locations this week in the New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival. To choose just a few:
- tonight (Tuesday) there's a chance to see Roman Polanski's Macbeth in the evocative setting of Deptford's ancient St Nicholas Church;
- tomorrow night there's a 'Spiceworld the Movie' Spice Girls singalong showing at the Golden Anchor and 'Pride' (the film based on Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) at New Cross Learning.
- On Saturday 30th April there's an open air cycle powered showing of  Labyrinth in Telegraph Hill Park, featuring David Bowie as goblin king.
- On the last day of the festival Buster Mantis, the new Jamaican themed bar in Deptford, will host an afternoon of films (in association with the Jamaica International Reggae Film Festival)  and music (courtesy of Unit 137 Sound System). The triple bill will include Sound Business (1980s London sound system film), We the Ragamuffin (1990s film shot in Peckham) and Countryman, with Q&A from one of the leading experts on Jamaican and Reggae film culture, Julian Henriques.
