Project Description

Elefest is special because it celebrates one of the most maligned and misunderstood areas of London, we created Elefest to celebrate the cultural and creative diversity of the area and the people who live in it. – Rob Wray, director Elefest

A free festival which has been held annually since 2003, based in multiple and changing venues within Elephant and Castle. The festival started as primarily as a platform to show films by local community groups alongside art and international films. The festival spans a long weekend and hosts music, performances and parties alongside film screenings.

Longstanding collaborations and coverage by South London Hardcore Radio station, Hotel Elephant, The Coronet, The Cinema Museum as well as local and London-based artists, musicians and organisers.
