New Cross and Deptford Free Film Festival 2018

The Bear will be screening 'Paddington 2' (cert.PG) at 4pm on Saturday 28 April as part of the NXDFFF. The doors will open at 3.30pm and there will be refreshments for sale. Our second screening will be 'The Work' (cert 15) on Wednesday 2 May at 8pm. The doors will open at 7.30pm and there will be a licensed bar. This fly-on-the-wall documentary, made in Folsom Prison, California, offers a powerful and rare glimpse inside this maximum security facility. 

The screenings are free, but there will be the opportunity to donate if you want to. The NXDFFF is a fantastic local project which The Bear is very pleased to be a part of. Completely staffed by volunteers, it relies on donations to continue.
