International Movie Night
Day for Night is a London based film company that aims to make independent films more accessible to the wider population. They work on exhibitions, distribution, and translation. In June they set up Cinémathèque, a monthly film night that is to take place at The Proud Archivist. This restaurant combines food with art, as the space is also used as a gallery and place for cultural events.
Every last Wednesday of the month, Cinémathèque will screen independently made art house films from around the world. Tickets are £4 in advance or £5 at the door. They are delicate, experimental, powerful, and gives you a glimpse into another culture. The film night debuted last month with HI-SO (Thailand, 2010), and the next two events have just been announced:
