Coronavirus has closed venues, silenced exhibitors & isolated audiences. THIS IS HOW WE ARE RESPONDING.

Revive The Dark is an audience-backed initiative to support and celebrate alternative screen culture in London, powered by funding from our monthly subscribers at Patreon.

Supported entirely by our subscriber community, #ReviveTheDark will:

◆   Raise funds for alternative cinema events across London
◆   Celebrate outstanding acts of exhibition with new Audience Awards
◆   Significantly expand our scene content and coverage at
◆   Create a community of subscribers committed to preserving the rituals of cinema

The more subscribers we get, the more we can get done. That starts with 40% of every subscription going directly to fund indie screen events across the capital.
