The Short List, a new showcase for emerging filmmakers at The Cinema in the Arches (05 SEP 2022)

The Cinema in the Arches, located by the Battersea Power Station, presents its first ever short films showcase on 05 September 2022 at 8.30pm.

Submitted by The Cinema in the Arches

Once every two months, The Short List will be screening 90 minutes’ worth of short films in the venue’s Dolby Atmos cinema. The showcase is intended to provide a platform for filmmakers who may not have had an opportunity to get their work theatrically screened, and to provide a space for meeting and networking with likeminded creatives.

The first volume, entitled Girls on Film, will feature eight films centering on complex female narratives. Each volume will have a different theme based on the films selected. Tickets are priced at £5 and are currently on sale on the cinema’s website.

“As a team made up of cinema lovers, we are immensely excited to be pursuing this initiative of screening new works by emerging film makers where they belong – in a cinema! Alongside our accessible pricing of just £5 per ticket, we’re sure The Short List will have a long life ahead!”

Chris Swney, General Manager, The Cinema in the Arches

The Cinema in the Arches is a 3-screen independent cinema located under the railway arches next to Battersea Power Station. Founded in 2019, and starting life as the Archlight Cinema, the venue offers “luxury reclining seats, a Dolby Atmos sound system and crystal-clear laser projection”.
