THE 90’S Screen Festival is coming to filmgoers this November, and is giving you a chance to re-watch some of your favourite urban classics such as Set it Off, White Men Can’t Jump and ATL.
The first screening of the festival will take place at the beautifully restored Bellingham Film Palace on November 14 2019 from 8pm-12an. Every film screening at the festival is hand-picked by the Garment Source team of programmers.
Garment Source and Serime TV have been working alongside small organisations leading up to the event to help bring together inspirational individuals between the ages 18-25 who are underrepresented creatives within the local area.
At the event, they will also be running stalls including trusted apparel and fashion accessories that are available for both men and women.
Jamel Higgins, campaign director said: “We are very grateful to have the chance to work with SMEs from the local area to showcase some of the best talent all on one single platform. We want to shine a light on diverse talent and help people recognise where and how they can get access to these products and services”.
The event will also be recorded by AIL TV (Africans in London), a platform to explore the progress of people of African and Caribbean origin. AIL TV described this as a ‘chance to create and produce our own programs as a community without any limitations.’
In addition, a number of special guests are set to make an appearance at the 90’s Screen Creative Network Event that takes place after the film screening to show their support for the incredible young black creatives.
Social media influencer and comedian Uncle Ed will be the official host of the 90’s Screen Event and will be joined on stage by WCYB podcast presenters TC, D.Rose and Crudz who run an independent digital radio and podcasting platform producing content of relevance to young people’s everyday experiences. WCYB commented: “Come listen as we make room for wider conversation with the audience”.
Reflecting on the upcoming event, the previous young mayor of London borough Lewisham and director of Garment Source Ltd said: “ We have just under two weeks to prepare for an exciting event. Furthermore we will have people travelling from all corners of London to come and enjoy a nostalgic themed event. The event will have plenty of entertainment on the evening. Tell a friend to tell a friend to tell some more friends”.
Garment Source and Serime TV are amongst some of the brands sponsoring the film festival that have paid tribute to over 12+ SMEs since its inception. The number of SMEs involved in the event is due to grow throughout the timeline of the festival. Some of these brands include: Parris London, Sasha Gear, Bébégarçon Clothing, Beyond Ninety2, Moncoh Studios, Vintage Garment Boutiques, HouseofLashLondon, Mama Nee’s and Opulent Delights.
