NXDFFF 2018 – Back for a 7th year!

The New Cross + Deptford Free Film Festival (NXDfff) returns for its seventh year this spring with 33 free film events, 3 bike powered screenings, 9 new venues, Q&A sessions, DJs and docs. Something for every member of the community.

We launch the festival at the Brick Brewery with the buzzed-about indie horror turned global phenomenon Get Out. By turns both comic and creepy and brilliantly acted Get Out is the must-see opener for this year’s festival. Brick Brewery will be hosting with a late license bar, Indian street food and DJs.

This year we have three outdoor bike powered screenings courtesy of the amazing Electric Pedals. For the first time the festival will be at Pepys Park for animated musical feature Sing. Put on your wrestling mask for Jack Black comedy Nacho Libre at Telegraph Hill Upper Park and dress up for a night of buccaneers, salty sea dogs and pedalling Pirates of the Carribean at Folkestone Gardens.

NXDfff is delighted to present a pre-release screening of locally shot film, SINK, followed by a Q&A with writer/director Mark Gillis. Shot in New Cross, Deptford and Brockley, the film has generated a great deal of interest after Mark Rylance saw the finished cut and became an Associate Producer.

The festival closes at popular Deptford venue Buster Mantis with a music themed documentary called Beats of the Antanov. The film depicts the Sudanese conflict in the Blue Nile and Nuba Mountain regions, focusing in particular on the role of music in helping the affected communities to sustain themselves culturally and spiritually. Buster Mantis will host our last event and local DJ collective Bombotropics will provide global beats and melodies.
