Founded in 2023, SET Film Festival is an alternative grassroots festival of contemporary, artist, and archival film. Screenings are held every November at SET Social, an arts and social club located just off Rye Lane in Peckham.

We show dozens of shorts each year across five curated screenings, a feature film and run a free archival night showing films from the local area. Each screening is followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, and is accompanied by a risograph programme printed by SET studio holders Pagemasters.

This year’s festival will take place every Thursday from 7 November to 5 December 2024.

The festival’s curators are Amina Ali, Ellie Dobbs and Verity Monroe. Follow @set.filmfestival for the latest updates, and to view our photo archive.
