RADIANT CIRCUS celebrates London’s alternative cinema scene

“An old skool #FF to @radiantcircus – doing vital work, keeping tabs on rep, alt and DIY film screenings in London.” Little White Lies.

Our all-inclusive listings cover everything from DIY movie nights to bar screenings, film clubs, repertory seasons, moving image festivals, special events, ‘meet the crew’ Q&As, gallery installations and exhibitions.

There are four main types of exhibit at RADIANT CIRCUS:

  • SCREENS: calendar of coming attractions + promoter, venue & festival directories;
  • GUIDES: listings of London’s indie movie nights, film events & gallery screenings;
  • QUESTS: where we experience London’s finest attractions together;
  • FEATURES: where we offer news, interviews & opinions about what’s on screen.

Each month, we pick the finest films in London and invite you to experience them with us.

Follow us into the darkness to find cinematic oddities of all shapes and sizes including: micro-budget marvels, genre-bending horror shows, cult classics, sensational silents, world cinema treasures, artists’ video and experimental film.

A word from our Barker-In-Chief:

“We started RADIANT CIRCUS as new arrivals in London looking for adventurous screen content. Each day has been a process of discovery as more indie programmers, alternative screens, film clubs and festivals are added to our search.

We regularly travel across London to great events and are disappointed when there’s room for more folk at each exciting screening. It’s those (empty) seats we want RADIANT CIRCUS to help fill.”

Our future is set on building bigger audiences for overlooked, unfamiliar, challenging & experimental moving pictures

“A lot of love, time and effort being put into these really useful and comprehensive listings.” SUPAKINO.

We have set three main goals for our membership campaign at Patreon:

  • GOAL 1: When we reach 350 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will be fully sustainable in our current form & we will be able to continue to do what we do.
  • GOAL 2: When we reach 600 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will hire a web developer to help us build more comprehensive daily screen listings for London’s alternative attractions.
  • GOAL 3: When we reach 1,000 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will be able to stage FREE members-only screenings as a (huge) thank you for your support.

*Parental advisory warning…

We don’t edit our website, guides and quests for age-appropriate material. In fact, the more *warnings* promoters put on their content, the more we want to see it… All members must therefore be 18 or over. By taking out a monthly membership you are confirming that you are an adult.

Join the hunt for adventurous moving pictures.
