Our coverage of the Across the Street, Around the World Festival continues with a look at the Best of the West, an event that celebrates West London’s rich filmmaking history and the part it has played in the progression of black British representation. The main event? A special screening of Horace Ové’s 1987 TV comedy, Playing Away, followed by an interview session with both the man himself and young British filmmaker, Kolton Lee.
Looking for some cinematic excitement in October? Across The Street, Around The World is a three week festival celebrating the cultural diversity and artistic output of the communities within Kensington and Chelsea, with lectures, DJ sets, classical music, film screenings and art exhibitions.
