The Southend Film Festival will again take place at the Park Inn By Radisson Palace Hotel. With the intention to include a lot of the films and events that were unable to be screened at 2020’s cancelled film festival.
The dates for this year’s festival will be Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th September 2021.
For the Opening Gala we are going ‘to the seaside’ in Brighton for a rollicking romp in which two working class couples return to the famous resort after a 40 year absence, only to find that much has changed – in every sense. By contrast, our Closing Gala brings us right back home, with Killing Dad set – and filmed – in the very hotel that is hosting the festival! This will be an amazing experience you will not want to miss!
In between, we have our usual mix of classics, new features and World Cinema – and, of course, we have our much-loved heritage presentations.
