After the success of the Shelley Gardens Community Food Festival and the Exchange In Roath clothes swap, Green City Events and Cynefin Cardiff have teamed up with a number of local businesses and community organisations to host Cardiff’s first Pedal-Powered Outdoor Film Festival. Woo!
Volunteers will be using their cycling skills to bring classic family friendly films and international comedies to Plasnewydd Community Centre, so you can sit back and enjoy an eco-friendly summer film outdoors in the fresh air.
On Friday 4 September there will be a screening of 80s Czech comedy Slunce, Seno A Pár Facek, which follows the story of a self-centred king who comes to learn the error of his ways when he tries to measure how much each of his three daughters loves him. This will be followed on Saturday 5 September by a matinee screening of Disney classicThe Lion King and an evening screening of Cool Runnings – the ultimate family-friendly underdog comedy that was inspired by the true story of Jamaica’s first bobsleigh team.
It isn’t just about the films, however, as local Jamaican street food aficionados Jerk It will be serving up some tasty Caribbean treats during the screening.
“We love to support local businesses at our events and this is just another example” explains Green City Event’s Becca Clark, “plus I popped in there today and the food looked great! It’s really going to add to the atmosphere of the event!”
Look out for some other exciting surprises and announcements coming soon including a competition to win VIP seat upgrades including free food!
The best part of the film festival is that tickets are only £1 for each screening. This means you can see a film and not only feel good about supporting local communities and encouraging eco-friendly events, but also leave happy knowing that you haven’t burnt a hole in your pocket.
Tickets: £1 per person. You can buy tickets from Green City Events or inside Plasnewydd Community Centre.
