This November, Chocolate Films are offering three screening programmes, giving an insight to the parts of the city that are rarely seen. Screenings of selected short documentaries from acclaimed online series 1000 Londoners will take audiences right to the heart of London’s subcultures. The films, which will include premieres of new content, will be shown alongside rare archive footage of London.
In Week 1, meet the Londoners who live the city by night – the escorts, cabaret artists and clubbers. In Week 2, hang out with the Londoners on two wheels – the Critical Mass protesters and bikers. Dip into the world of London’s fighters in Week 3 – including a Shaolin monk and the world’s top Street Fighter gamer.
The screenings are being run as part of the BFI’s ‘Britain on Film’ season, supported by Film Hub London, and will be held at Hackney Attic, The Exhibit, Deptford Cinema, Stow Film Lounge and Hotel Elephant. Londonist has been announced as the media partner for the events.
