Saturday 3 February
Theatre Peckham


In 2017 South Social had no boundaries. We went North, South, East and West. We explored Lebanon twice, Finland, Chile, India, Jewish culture and Mexico. We had 7 special events, 10 films, more than 20 talented musicians and dancers. 7 different cuisines and a wonderful crowd, you! Next year we do even better, we move to a new venue down South, in Peckham, @Theatre Peckham. We add also art to our experience. Think about video artist, painters, sculptors and we travel to Greece, Palestine, Chile, Japan, Africa and Norway.

We start 2018 with a Greek big bang! South Social meets Greece, on Saturday February 3 at 6:30pm. We screen an awesome film, DJAM by master Tony Gatlif.  A movie on the road between the #Greekislands and #Instanbul, full of #music, #dance and #singing. A Q&A with young actress Daphne Patakia, a merry go round of music with Perastiki SOAS Rebetiko Band  and a lavish Greek banquet by Pan  



South Social Film Festival is South London’s home for international independent films, music and food events. SSFF is a showcase for cross-cultural diversity showing films that will shock, enlighten, inspire and entertain the expat groups based in South London.
In 2016 South Social Film Festival launched a series of events, South Social Meets the World, dedicated each month to a different country, starting in April until October and a special Crowdfunding event in November.
In 2017 South Social continues the second series of South Social Meets the world: 6 events for 6 countries, 6 screenings with 6 world musicians and 6 diverse cuisines.
South Social Meets the World is supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London, BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery. Partners include Embassy of Finland, Finnish Institute, Raindance Film Festival, Brazil Embassy, Instituto Cervantes, Institut Français, Embassy of Argentina, Arts Canteen, British Lebanese association, Arab British centre, UK Jewish film festival and The Cinema Museum.
South Social Film Festival is an immersive movie, music & dining experience celebrating independent world cinema. First launched in 2015, South Social dedicates every event to a different country, turning into a platform to celebrate diversity through art, cinema, world music and food. 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 400 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.
