Latin American festival heads to Dulwich Park


South Social film festival, one of the most proactive events platforms in London which aims to celebrate diversity, community inclusion and emerging talent, is hosting “i-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s”. This festival will pay tribute to Latin America with short films, dance, music and regional cuisine on 24-25 July at Dulwich park.

South Social will present curated programmes of Latin American short films. These will tell stories that explore the regional cinema of each country to showcase the culture at its best, films that stand out, that tell powerful stories and transmit an authentic image of their Latino roots.

Audiences will have the opportunity to engage with filmmakers in attendance and vote on their favourite short films which will count towards two separate audience awards to be presented on the closing night July 25th.

Throughout both days of the “i-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s” Latin American Festival, there will be a pop-up cinema in the middle of Dulwich park where festival-goers can enjoy a full immersion into world cinema and screenings from selected filmmakers. Before each screening, a Latin American dance workshop will also take place to engage families and children through Latino dancing.

There will be live Latin American music with a band performing on the main stage into the evening. As well as regional food stalls dedicated to various countries, with vendors serving delicious food and drinks throughout the weekend.

We would encourage any budding filmmakers, and those from a Latin background in particular, who have a short film they would like to submit to do it via the FilmFreeway platform before the deadline on June 22nd 2021.
Paola Melli Founder and Director & Founder of South Social film festival said:

“We’re excited to be able to launch ” i-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s” Latin American Festival. Our festival is built around the concept of inclusion and celebrating diverse emerging talent from every corner of the world. It’s been difficult for us to not be able to connect in the ways we used to during the pandemic, and so we see this as an opportunity to welcome audiences and communities back into a festival setting and engage them with new art and fresh perspectives.”
I-d-e-n-t-i-t-i-e-s event programme will run in the following order: 5pm opening of food and drinks stalls; 6pm Latin American dance workshop; 7pm Latin American band; 8:30pm cinema screening of a curated selection of short films; 10pm audience award; and 10:30pm end of festival.
