Liberate your lunch hour!
LUNCHTIME FILM SOCIETY is a new collab between RADIANT CIRCUS, Lunchbox Theatre (St. Bride Foundation), Big Picture Film Club, Cheap Cuts Documentary Film Festival, Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest, and Women Over 50 Film Festival.
The pop-up film festival will project a bitesize film programme, every lunch hour, at 1pm from Tuesday 22nd October to 1st November at the Bridewell Theatre (St Bride Foundation, Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London EC4Y 8EQ – Tuesday – Friday – For audiences aged 18+ only).
[TUE 22 OCT] BETTER UNITED: At a time of national disunity, these short films explore the value of community to find common ground, work together & get stuff done (or simply have a good natter over a decent pint!).
[WED 23 OCT] ABOUT US: The stories we tell about people & places reveal a lot about us. But how do our stories get out there & who gets to tell them? These shorts show how stories can both define us & set us free.
[THU 24 OCT] FRAME BY FRAME: There’s more to animation than princesses & talking animals (well, we’ve got a cute ninja deer, but you know what we mean?). These animated shorts tell bold stories of both fact & fiction.
[FRI 25 OCT] UNCONVENTIONAL U: A celebration of difference for everyone who has ever come out, come of age or simply come alive. These shorts channel the fierce spirit to be yourself in an age of increasing conformity.
[TUE 29 OCT] SMARTPHONE: These shorts were all made on smartphones, showcasing the potential of the camera in your pocket to create a mini-masterpiece (& we don’t mean your cat “playing” the piano…).
[WED 30 OCT] LONDON STORIES: Life in London is a collage of constant choice & change. These shorts look at how the city is evolving & how the choices we make affect our lives & (possible) futures.
[THU 31 OCT] HALLOWEEN SPECIAL: Join us this Halloween for a lunchtime lineup of short films with extra bite. These twisted tales will send shivers down your spine…
[FRI 01 NOV] THAT FRIDAY FEELING: Start your weekend early – & celebrate the end of our first pop-up! – with a flip-out fantastic programme of joyous shorts that will lift your spirits & send you back out with a smile.
