1000 Londoners Showing Across the City!
Things are starting to get incredibly exciting for the 1000 Londoners project. Well, things have been exciting since we launched in April but the project is now starting to take on a life of it’s own!
Whilst all the films have been available on 1000Londoners.com, YouTube and Vimeo, we have always been incredibly keen on the idea of getting the 1000 Londoners films out and about across the capital. If this sounds up your alley and you want to see all of our Londoners films in cinemas, galleries and museums then you’re about to get very very happy…
Vue Picadilly, Londoners by Londoners Launch Event
On 3rd September we are launching the next phase of the 1000 Londoners project! You can be amongst the first to see 15 new 1000 Londoners films all made by different Londoners across the city. There are films about a BBC Radio 1 producer, an incredible story of adoption, a young person who escaped gang life through performance and someone who dresses permanently like it is 1780! The Londoners and the filmmakers will all be in attendance so feel free to stay behind after the screenings and investigate all these amazing stories even further.
You can get free to tickets to this fantastic event by clicking this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/1000-londoners-tickets-5574645916
Until mid October you can view the first 30 1000 Londoners films in a new, special exhibition. 10 films will be shown at a time on different screens with the first 10 films currently being shown now. Watermans is right on the Thames and has a bar, a cafe, a cinema and theatre so why not check out our free exhibition and make a day of it!
Talk to me London
Our friends at Talk to Me London are hosting a special screening of 10 1000 Londoner films, highlighting Londoners who meet and interact with other Londoners on a daily basis.
Plus, stay on for their evening social afterwards! Unlike any other event this is simply for the purpose of talking to new people. Discover the diverse people of London – everyone welcome! https://www.facebook.com/events/1496050203970024/?notif_t=plan_user_joined
Londoner #23, Sophie at the Ritzy
You can still see Londoner #23, Sophie, on the big screen before showings of certain films. Half of the film takes place at the Ritzy as well which, if you think about it, means that you can watch the film in 4D…in a way… It’s all very exciting though.
Design in London Festival
As you may have seen, we’ve been running a competition in association with The London Design Festival to find films about Designers in London! The films are to be screened during the London Design Festival at a special screening taking place on the 19th of September at the V&A museum, as part of their London-themed day of talks and event.
So there you have it. a whole plethora of ways to stay up to date with the 1000 Londoners project. We hope to see you at as many events as possible and thank you again for all your continued support of the project!
