Brixton Community Cinema launches in Brixton Village

Brixton Community Cinema is a pilot-scheme pop-up screening event. The objective of the cinema is to bring affordable international and independent film to a community who, despite immense cultural contributions, face uneven access to arts institutions.

The cinema will screen a range of films across genre and format which foreground subaltern voices and experiences, and showcase the breadth of experimental approaches to using film as a medium of expression and protest.

Operating on a pay-what-you-can basis, it aims to explore ways to minimise both the financial and non-financial barriers to cinema-going.

Set up by film enthusiast and South Londoner, Abiba Coulibaly, the cinema has been supported by the Extra Nice Fund.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
