Brixton’s first ever ‘Still/Moving DSLR Film Festival‘ kicks off on Saturday 20 September. This festival is a chance to see a variety of films both from established and emerging filmmakers. The brain child of Photofusion Gallery, the eight-day film festival aims to explore how artists, photographers and filmmakers engage with DSLR cameras.

Acclaimed film ‘The Heart of Bruno Wizard’ marks the start of the festival, whilst the programme also includes screenings of  ‘Restrepo’, ‘Anton Corbijn – Inside out’, ‘End of Season’ and ‘Office Killer’. There are also several director Q&As which promise to add further flavours to the screenings.

“We at The Ritzy are delighted to be working with our friends at Photofusion in bringing such a strong programme of films and events to the local community. We hope it’s a chance for audiences to engage with current discussions surrounding photography, film and new media technologies and to see a diverse and intriguing collection of films and videos on the big screen,” says Minda Moreira, The Ritzy’s marketing manager.

There will also be public screenings of winning entries of emerging filmmakers at venues including Windrush Square and Grow:Brixton. The judging panel is made up by Claire Binns, Picturehouse Director of Programming and Acquisitions, Anna Duffield, BAFTA nominated producer and Dan Curwin, Atlantic Records video commissioner.

The festival will close with an awards ceremony at the Ritzy on Saturday 28 September.
