For film lovers, nowhere in the world could be more exciting than Merton in 2019. 100 films will be popping up in secret locations across the whole borough, particularly around the east.
New films will be commissioned and an immersive technologies festival will conclude the unique festival in early 2020.
FilmMerton emerged as an exciting proposal in 2017; winning a Cultural Impact Award from London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan in February 2018. Merton Council has put in the lion’s share of the money and support we need to make it happen. Merton’s newly formed Cultural Advisory Group has worked tirelessly to consult, to dream, to fundraise and get us to this exciting point.
Our programme of film screenings for October to December 2019 is now out. All screenings are free! Visit http://filmmerton.co.uk/ for details of all screenings and to learn more about Film Merton.
