Since its launch in 2002 the Portobello Film Festival has presented a successful annual urban art strand showcasing pioneering artists like Blek Le Rat, Jamie Hewlett and Eine throughout West London.
This year the strand will be taken from a fringe event and launched as a stand-alone festival through a spectacular weekend exhibition at the Louise Blouin Foundation, together launching the 2013 Portobello Film Festival into action.
The exhibition, supported by Arts Council England, will include artwork by the likes of Sickboy and Peter Dunne, live displays from Pure Evil and Dotmaster, installations by Teddy Baden and the Mutoid Waste Company (as seen in the London 2012 Paralympic closing ceremony) and more; all alongside a lively programme of film screenings, music, workshops and special events.
