Arts festival organised by over 60s brings silver screen to Hackney
London’s only arts festival organised by older people is bringing the silver screen to Hackney tomorrow (July 5).
Capital Age Festival is showing a series of short films made by artists aged over 60, including one exploring film as a creative means of communication for people living with dementia.
Called Discover Silver Screen, the screenings will be followed by a question and answer session with the filmmakers. The afternoon will finish with a complimentary reception in the bar.
Festival Director Paul Margrave said: “The festival is all about getting older people involved in creative activities across London and we are delighted to be offering this event in Hackney.
“Capital Age Festival is a great way to find out what’s happening in your local area and get involved.”
