Want help promoting your event?
We browse several hundred websites each week to list as many screen events as we can find – it’s become an obsession. If you’re unfamiliar with what we list and why, have a browse through our website or read our Listings Policy. If we don’t know about you/your event, please say hi via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can help promote your events in other ways too: follow these quick links…
1. SEND US YOUR PRESS RELEASES
We are expanding our editorial content at RADIANT CIRCUS, improving coverage of London’s one-off screen events, festivals & repertory seasons as well as celebrating alternative screen culture in all its forms.
Send us announcements about your:
- one-off special events (e.g. ‘meet the talent’ Q&As or ambitious pop-ups)
- season & festival programmes
- new publications (e.g. ‘zines, books or podcasts that celebrate alternative screen culture in London)
- special achievements (won an award recently? Let us know! We want to celebrate too…)
- social concerns (started a kickstarter? raising money for good causes? launched a new project?)
Include all the necessary details & some quotes about why your news is so exciting. We love using high quality images for our featured attractions, so attach those too (1200px wide – send credits & links if the images aren’t your own).
As you’d expect, all editorial decisions remain ours.
2. BOOST YOUR EVENT
We are building a loyal following of adventurous film fans across all our online channels. Chief among them are our passionate subscribers at Patreon.
Give your event a promotional boost by inviting our subscribers, friends and followers to attend. You can do this by submitting it to our calendar of SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS. Calendar events appear on all our page posts, weekly mailouts & daily listings, & are fully searchable by venue, date etc. They also get boosted via Patreon blog posts and extra social media shout outs.
To use this premium option, please supply a box office discount voucher code for our subscribers and/or social media followers when you submit your event (you can choose how wide you want this to go, but we really welcome exclusives for our wonderful Patrons). Please note: events without a voucher code will not be accepted.
> Use this handy form to invite our Patrons to your event.
3. INVITE US TO COVER YOUR EVENT
Exhibitors have found it handy to have our writeups online when promoting their next screen event. As enthusiastic bloggers we will try to cover as many indie screen events as we can in our SCREEN DIARY.
Like much of RADIANT CIRCUS, we focus on events with added value special features such as meet the talent Q&As, panel discussions, double bills & dance-offs. We don’t write previews or reviews of films per se (the internet’s already full of ’em), being more interested in what’s happening when they’re shown. We also don’t write anything overly negative. If an event hasn’t worked for us, we just move right along…
4. LET’S COLLABORATE
RADIANT CIRCUS is building a unique portfolio of promotional and screening collabs, including media partnerships with:

And our own embryonic screening collabs, including:
- LUNCHTIME FILM: encore screenings of film festival short film programmes
