No, Peckham is not ‘the new Dalston’. What it is is a fertile breeding ground for arts of all types, and a home to independent festivals such as Peckham Artist Moving Image. Better known as PAMI, the festival is a celebration of the home-grown artistic talent that’s rife in this particular corner of south London. Long-standing neighbourhood venues PeckhamPlex (still the cheapest cinema in London, as far as we’re aware) and Choumert Road Market join newer creations such as Bold Tendencies in Peckham multi-storey car park to show off the best innovative moving image arts emerging at the moment.

Highlights include the ‘INHERENT VICE’ event, which accompanies the Bold Tendencies exhibition of the same name (8pm, September 21, book tickets here), ‘screening experiments’ on a milk cart and other vehicles in ‘A-Float’ (7.30pm, September 19) and ‘Asparagus at the Quackadero’, a talk on radical female animators of the ’70s at the South London Gallery (5pm, September 22). Be inspired, entertained, or confused – just don’t mention the D-word.

PAMI takes place in various locations around Peckham from September 19-22. Find the full list of events at pami.org.uk
