Submitted by The Duke Mitchell Film Club

After a forced hiatus (you know, 😷…), The Duke Mitchell Film Club returns with their DukeFest, offering a program “stuffed to the gills with celluloid madness”. From a Cannes festival favourite to NY Public Access TV, the four-day bonanza “celebrates the madness of cinema in every possible format” across two London venues: The Prince Charles Cinema & King & Queen pub in Fitzrovia.

The Prince Charles plays host to the opening night screening of Jean-Christophe Meurisse’s BLOODY ORANGES, “the most transgressive, outrageous and in-your-face black comedy of the last few decades” (31 JUL 20:30), followed by Waris Hussein’s THE POSSESSION OF JOEL DELANEY which also serves as a book launch for author and filmmaker Sean Hogan’s latest work of metafiction, Twilight’s Last Screaming (03 AUG 20:20).

You can dive deeply into the festival’s free content at King & Queen with Alex’s Mystery Show and Evrim presents: 15-Years Of The Duke (01 AUG), followed by Secret Society: The Zircon Affair, The Best of the Worst of Evrim’s Favourites, and The New York Public Access Show – Part 2 (02 AUG). Full programme details on the festival’s website.
