SSMW is a mix between art film, world music, and the culture of food. Inviting international directors to present their own films, supported by live music bands and offering the best of regional catering. This is to show how all these different cultures merge together and bring audiences to a new level of understanding diversity. South Social Film Festival is run by a team from our South London community. Our goal is to celebrate the diversity of our communities by showing the talent in international, independent cinema. We want to give international cinema a home in South London to encourage a fair representation of different cultures, voices and stories. This not-for-profit film festival is a celebration of the city we live in, and the people we all share it with.

Our Ethos

London has more than 120 cinemas, screening halls and multiplexes. Most of them screen only mainstream films or blockbusters. Often, the only way to see a real cross-cultural film is to go to a festival. South Social Film Festival will cater for all these independent cravings. Film, music and cuisine all under one roof – a true first for London’s ever diversifying diaspora, hungry cinephiles and inquisitive minds.
