As part of Artists’ Film Club this week, on Wednesday 10 April we have Loris Gréaud with the UK premiere of Gréaud’s The Snorks: A Concert for Creatures, featuring Anti-Pop Consortium, Charlotte Rampling and David Lynch.
Birds Eye View Festival favourite, Fashion Loves Film is back this Tuesday at the ICA for an assumption-shaking dose of glitz and glamour. In keeping with the 2013 festival theme, this year’s edition of FLF will focus solely on films by Arab female filmmakers. Centering on themes of dress and identity, we’ll be showing provocative, moving and frankly fabulous films, from the satirical short Niqabitch, which challenges the French banning of the hijab, to DoBuy, a documentary that shines a light on fashion and faith in the MENA region.

I hope you had a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend.
We are delighted to report that our two exhibitions Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years and The Independent Group: Parallel of Art & Life opened to a great reception last week. And Smithsfest over the weekend was also a runaway success. We look forward to bringing you more fests over the year, with MickRonsonfest (Sat 27 April) and Blondiefest (Fri 5 July) coming up next.
