The White Bus Ltd is delighted to organise and present the Horror-on-Sea film festival

We are Southend based, with our roots firmly planted in the local community. We specialise in film and video production, distribution and exhibition. We are also heavily involved in education, running courses on subjects as varied as camera lighting, editing and scriptwriting.

To the film-going public, apart from Horror-on-Sea, we are best known for the annual Southend Film Festival and our regular screenings at the Palace Theatre, Westcliff. 

We are based at TAP, a temporary arts centre in an old Victorian water works, where we have our office and Cinema. The Cinema is available for private hire for previews, birthday parties, etc. Our Archive is home to over 2,000 reels of 16mm film, comprising over 250 British feature films, an extensive collection of material by iconic director Lindsay Anderson (whose drama documentary The White Bus inspired our company name) and hundreds of short films, documentaries and cartoons. Selections from the Archive are shown every Wednesday evening from 7pm. These are public shows, and admission is free, so please do join us! The films in the Archive are also available for private viewing in the Cinema.

Do please get in touch if you would like to know more about our activities.
