After seven years of arthouse, cult, world cinema, trash and a lot of sing-alongs, we’re putting Deptford Film Club into hibernation. 

We ran from 2010 to 2016, launching at the Birds Nest with a delicious screening of Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, and coming slowly to a rest within the loving embrace of New Cross + Deptford Free Film Festival.

The local area now has a very healthy film scene, with two permanent cinemas and an annual film festival. We’re glad we were a part of your lives, and are now busy training the next generation of film programmers. Thanks for watching. Cinema Forever!
