The launch of Kilburn Film Festival takes place

Movies will focus on the five continents of the world over a 10 day period

A host of cultures and nations will be celebrated across Kilburn this week following the launch of the Kilburn Film Festival last night (Thursday).

More than 70 people packed into South Kilburn Studios, in Canterbury Road, to celebrate the start of ten days worth of films, which will focus on the five continents of the world.

Anna Bowman, Film Festival organiser said: “It was a great night and lots of people came out to enjoy it.

“We have some really talented people on board and hopefully the films will offer

something for everyone, the evening was very much a success.”

Venues for the film screenings include iconic Kilburn venues such as St Mary’s Church in Neasden Lane and the Tin Tabernacle in Cambridge Avenue.

Local community groups and organisations have also come on board to help with the running of proceedings including Kingsgate Workshop and the Irish Women’s Group.

Ms Bowman, who lives in Cotleigh Road, added: “South Kilburn Studios is a really special place which can be easily equipped for your needs.

“We have some great venues lined up that are renowned in the Kilburn community.”

The film screenings tie in with The Kilburn Festival, which was launched five years ago.

The film festival will culminate with a screening at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn High Road on July 8.
