Southend Film Festival 2024

Park Inn by Radisson Palace

Southend Film Festival returns for 2024 with a range of films and documentaries that will whet any film buff’s appetite!

This year is a rather poignant one. Our Opening Gala is a sparkling new comedy, The Broken Arrow, and we are looking forward to welcoming members of the cast and crew to this prestigious black tie, red carpet screening. But our Closing Gala will take on a rather different tone as we present a tribute to a much loved actor, director and producer. Local lad Darren Kent, a great friend of the festival, sadly passed away last year. We hope this tribute, devised by his good friend, and fellow filmmaker, Jane Gull, will be a fitting memorial for a wonderful person.

​In between these Gala evenings we will be presenting our usual mix of documentaries, World Cinema, new features and classic films.
