Entrance to St Matthew’s Mission during the project

The Fishwick & St Matthews community film project has begun.


For five days across the area all sorts of film showings will take place at the St Matthew’s Mission.

It’s not just film showings, but community events run alongside it.

It started tonight with BMX club the Preston Pirates pulling tricks through the streets of Fishwick and the Preston Roller Girls whizzed along the roads.

European biking champion Dylan Clayton joined the fun too.

The Avengers Assemble was the film shown.

Events continue on Thursday 5 December with adults invited to join the Late Night Lounge as it explores alternative subcultures.

It’s Bollywood night on Friday with comedy English Vinglish, co-programmed by Fishwick charity Sahara.

Saturday starts at 1pm with family workshops, and retro video gaming, plus dance workshops.

It also includes a showing of a short film by local Brownies groups, to get a culture badge.

The final day on Sunday 8 December is called On Our Streets and includes eco-themed films.

The events are put on by Preston-based cultural producers They Eat Culture and the project is funded by the British Film Institute. The Friends of Fishwick and St Matthews have also helped organise the events.
