An update from Charlton & Woolwich Free Film Festival‘s Gavin Eastley:
The Charlton and Woolwich Free Film Festival held their first meeting in the reborn White Swan in Charlton Village on Wednesday 24th February. An excellent turnout with lots of enthusiasm and imagination in the room put us firmly on the road to make the festival a reality. Films and venues were suggested and we now have a number of venues keen to host a film screening including St Georges Garrison Church, Charlton Park Academy and Shrewsbury House.
Greenwich Council have offered the big screen in General Gordon Square and have arranged a meeting to discuss how they can help further. We are looking for all interested members of the Charlton and Woolwich communities to take part in what we intend will become an annual event.
If you are a film buff, a film maker, interested in community cohesion and celebration or would like to volunteer in an interesting venture then please come to the second meeting of the Charlton and Woolwich Free Film Festival at the Woolwich Equitable pub, General Gordon Square, Woolwich on Wednesday 16th March at 7:30pm
We went to the last meeting and were very impressed by the turnout, ideas and enthusiasm on display. This could be a great event for Charlton and Woolwich: we hope more local venues, groups and businesses get on board.
