SWIFF is happy to announce that it's 4th edition will be held on Saturday 28th November 2015 from 11.30 am -10.30 pm at Merton Vision, The Guardian Centre, 67 Clarendon Road , Colliers Wood London SW19 2DX .


In 2015 Merton Vision charity celebrates fifty years of providing services, information and support to residents of Merton with a visual impairment. SWIFF is honoured to help the charity by holding its annual film festival there and hopes that the event will go a long way to support the good work of Merton Vision.


The centre is equipped with its own bar which provides a variety of soft drinks, wines and beers and food at a much cheaper price than your typical London bar/pub.


Entrance to the film festival is free and all profits from the bar will go towards helping Merton Vision.


So please show up in force to help this great charity and also to see a diverse, interesting, entertaining and fascinating range of British and international films, and also to mingle with directors, producers, actors and many others.
