RADIANT CIRCUS is creating the only all-inclusive guide to London’s DIY, indie & alternative movie nights, film events & gallery screenings. Our latest SCREEN GUIDE helps you find films in London this week*.
Welcome to our weekly digest of films in London this week.
It’s early in the month and new seasons continue to bloom. Our pick of the month HER NAME IS… gets underway at Genesis Cinema with AMELIE (14 JUN). Then there’s the EDWARD YANG season at Close-up, delivering both A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY (10 JUN) and TAIPEI STORY (11 JUN). Deptford’s HARMONY KORINE weekender (08 to 10 JUN) sits smack in our wheelhouse, whilst special mention goes to Ciné Lumière for including one of our forever favourites about childhood, TOMBOY (12 JUN), in their PRIDE MONTH.
You’ll find stunning films by indie curators across the week. ROCKET SINGH presented by SUPAKINO (11 JUN, The Institute Of Light) is the next twist in TURBANS SEEN ON SCREEN, one of London’s most joyful and diverse acts of independent programming. Then, don’t forget to (re)read our RADIANT CIRCUS interviews with Michelle Facey – Part 1 & Part 2 – after booking your ticket for THE ROAD TO HAPPINESS at Kennington Bioscope (13 JUN, The Cinema Museum).
Finally, grab your garlic for the restored and uncut SALEM’S LOT at The King & Queen (09 JUN) and the original BUFFY at Rooftop (10 JUN). If things get too warm, try skinny dipping in PIRANHA’s 35mm 40th anniversary screening at The Prince Charles (12 JUN).
Our featured attraction of the week is the European premiere of a long-awaited restoration of LIQUID SKY, which plays exclusively at ICA.
