South Social Film Festival is a trans-geographical, multicultural and multidimensional festival celebrating independent cinema, dance, world music, art and regional cuisine, launched in 2015 in London.

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. Our not-for-profit film festival is a celebration of the city we live in and the people we all share it with.


We are looking ONLY FOR FILMS MADE IN THE UK, directed by local filmmakers in London or the UK. If you have exciting and innovative short and mid-length films, both fiction and documentary, that celebrate Black Culture in Peckham and South London specifically and also in London and the UK generally.

Works selected will be presented in Theatre Peckham, London UK as part of our SOUTH SOCIAL CELEBRATES BLACK CULTURE festival. As such, we are only able to accept projects filmed in English languages or with English language subtitles and shot in the UK.

    A very young festival, but great experience overall for their first year. We were incredibly well received, frequently kept up to date, and a good selection of movies on the subject of the festival. We're really looking forward to see what years to come will bring.

    South Social film festival was a wonderful experience for myself and the star of our film 'Get Riel' the venue was spacious and very accommodation, with a great stage that showed off the talents of our dancers plus other participants of the festival. Paola and her team were very helpful and made sure everyone was well looked after. The highlight for us was the opportunity to network with some interesting people and winning the special jury award, thank you once again for giving us the chance to showcase our film 'Get Riel'
