Southend Film Festival returns for 2023 with a range of films and documentaries that will whet any film buff’s appetite!
From the prestigious black tie, red carpet Opening Gala – the lovely drama A Bit of Light, with the filmmakers in attendance – to our Closing Gala – Best Geezer, the World Premiere of this hilarious take on British crime thrillers – Southend Film Festival will be presenting the usual mix of documentaries, World Cinema, new features and classic films.
The heritage presentations are always very popular, and this year Thames transport and the tragic 1953 Canvey flooding will take centre stage.
There is also have a wonderful tribute to Southend’s very own Kursaal Flyers, with members of the band joining in for a 50th anniversary screening of a documentary based on a three-week tour in 1976. Truly, a not-to-be-missed show!
This year’s festival runs from 8- 11th June 2023.
