The food, flavours and films of Chile, for free!

WHERE: Elephant Park, Elephant Rd, London SE17 1UB 
COST: Free outdoor festival

Following on from its Colombian and Argentinian festival last summer, South Social Film Festival is preparing for another fantastic event in Elephant Park, this time focusing on Chile.

On Saturday 13th July the not-for-profit organisation, which celebrates independent world cinema, will bring the sights, sounds and smells of Chile to Elephant & Castle’s newest green space.

The tempting aroma of traditional Chilean empanadas will fill the park when the food and drink stalls open at 6.30pm. There will be live music from the Chilean duo Silvia Balducci and Daniel Jimenez starting at 7.30pm before a screening of ‘Tarde Para Morir Joven’ (Too Late to Die Young) by film maker Dominga Sotomayor.

Hailing from Chile, this is the second film from Sotomayor who writes and producers her own material.

Paola Melli, director of South Social Film Festival, says: “The park is a great place for this type of festival. It’s very intimate and is intended for the community.

“Chile has got a very strong independent cinema scene, which is very up and coming right now. Dominga’s film is a beautiful coming-of-age story, which is sure to appeal to everyone.”

South Social Film Festival was founded in 2015, and is regarded as south London’s home for international independent films, music and food events. The company tours London putting on festivals for the community based on an individual country, which always includes independent cinema, traditional music and local food.

Tickets are free for the festival at Elephant Park, but please register here.
