A screening and networking event, re:VAULT is a short film and music night bringing together the best that dedicated independent filmmakers have to offer. Their mission is to: ‘assist filmmakers in their crowdfunding endeavours. Help to promote indie film projects. And to create a network of up and coming filmmakers in London.’ By screening short films of up and coming directors, who will be in attendance, it’s a smart idea for a networking event. re:VAULT will also let filmmakers take to the stage to talk about crowdfunding.
Here’s a trailer for the short film Him Indoors, starring Reece Shearsmith, from the brilliant writer/director Paul Davis:

Film in Spaceis a group exhibition selected by British artist-filmmaker Guy Sherwin. The exhibition focuses on expanded cinema, a film movement which came to prominence in Britain in the early 1970s, at the time Sherwin started making films. The movement was closely associated with the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative, an organisation set up in 1966 by artist-filmmakers to exhibit and produce experimental film work which challenged mainstream cinema.
Sherwin worked at the LFMC in its early years and was highly influenced by his experience. For Camden Arts Centre he has selected a number of key works from this period and is showing them along with works by younger artists who are continuing to experiment with the versatility of analogue media, as well as others who have started to take on board the advent of digital technologies. Throughout the exhibition there is an emphasis on film, light, and sound as material to be constantly re-worked, manipulated and experimented with.
If you’re already lucky enough to be under the wing of RSS and have come to one of the many ‘illegal raves’ we have put together, you might be surprised to know that we only actually began life 12 months ago; RSS 001 took place in January 2012…

Chain Gang is an exhibition of works between 10 artists/ illustrators/ designers. Each have produced original artworks including collaborative pieces as a way to keep the flow of the mechanism.
Hailing from different disciplines and each with their own approach, a varied selection of work will be seen in style, size and theme. Canvas, ink, print, and paint can be expected along with a great vibe.
The exhibition will take place within the relaxed environment of Juno Bar in Shoreditch, the artists welcome anyone who wants to join the evening and Ching glasses.
The second LoCo London Comedy Film Festival follows their 2012 smashing debut with the UK premiere of the biggest, boldest, ballsiest Hollywood comedy of the year, featuring Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Richard Gere, Kate Winslet and more. This all-star, gleefully offensive sketch comedy was co-created by Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary), with directors including Brett Ratner, Elizabeth Banks and Griffin Dunne, so we don’t recommend you bring your grandmother. Unless she’s very, very dirty. Join LoCo in the upstairs bar from 10pm for a pre-premiere party, followed by the screening (90mins) at midnight.
This exhibition will take a new look at the dynamic relationship between performance and painting since 1950. Contrasting key paintings by Jackson Pollock and David Hockney, the exhibition considers two different approaches to the idea of the canvas as an arena in which to act: one gestural, the other one theatrical. The paintings of the Vienna Actionists or the Shooting Pictures of Niki de St Phalle will be re-presented within the performance context that they were made, and juxtaposed with works by artists such as Cindy Sherman or Jack Smith that used the face and body as a surface, often using make-up in work dealing with gender role-play. The exhibition proposes a new way of looking at the work of a number of younger artists whose approach to painting is energised by these diverse historical sources, drawing upon action painting, drag and the idea of the stage set.
On Monday 28th January / 6.45pm-7.45pm, self-defining Queer artist Tim “Timberlina,” will be constructing a performance tour of the exhibition, centred around exploring the exhibition for broader sensibilities and notions of Queer past and present. Tickets are £10 / £7 concessions, and include a free glass of wine.
