Emerging Film Curators 2020

On sale dates

Join us for the first Emerging Film Curators series, with four programmes curated by four talented curatorial teams.

In October and December our Emerging Curators season features a series of shorts about Reframing the Fat Body; a programme of four films by Nao Yoshigai; a screening of I Still Hide to Smoke, with introduction and Q&A; plus a series of animated underground shorts.

We’ve brought in measures to keep you safe, in line with government guidelines. 

We’re keeping to the 2m rule and have fewer available seats in Cinema 1. We’ve also reduced the number of screenings, so that we can clean regularly, and make sure that entering and exiting is safer and simpler. It’s essential for you to wear a mask and book your tickets before you come. 

In line with government advice for seated venues, you can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household/bubble. We ask you to not swap seats when you arrive so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.
