Colin Tonks, Electric Pedals

This year's festival offers a stonking 32 free screenings at 22 local venues across SE14 and SE8, enough to satisfy even the pickiest cinephile. There's also a separate strand in 2016 'From Stratford to Deptford' marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death including that thinly-veiled homage to Hamlet - The Lion King. With a choice from over 1,000 adaptations they opted for Forbidden Planet, a sci-fi version of 'The Tempest', a spaghetti Western Johnny 'Hamlet', Baz Luhrmann's hectic 'Romeo and Juliet', Marlon Brando's 'Julius Caesar', Polanskl's furious 70s version of 'Macbeth', and a contemporary 'Hamlet' set in New York from 2000. The final film is a Shakespeare spin off 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead' starring Deptford boys Tim Roth and Gary Oldman.
