What we're about

Hi! You've found Sydenham Arts: Talking Films meet up group.

If you love film, tv and documentaries, this is the place for you! As part of Sydenham Arts Film programming, we're starting a new online group, where we'll meet up (online for now!) every month and discuss a whole host of current films, documentaries, and tv shows.

Each month, we set a new playlist for you to watch in your own time. All the content will be available to watch at home; some things might be on Netflix, or Amazon Prime, but we'll make sure that most of the list each month is on totally free-to-view platforms like iPlayer, All4, YouTube, ITV Hub etc.

You'll have a few weeks to watch to your heart's content, and then we will meet up and discuss what we've watched. We'll provide a few 'themes' and other things to think about, but its an opportunity for us all to share in our love (or dislike!!) of all things film.

Join up today and jump right in to our first playlist!
