July

Below is a selection of screenings in the London area throughout June. There is no specific criteria here but for a general focus on the alternative, the avant-garde, and the rare. Priority is given to one-off and repertory screenings rather than films with official distribution, though we sometimes note previews and Q&As for the more experimental work that does manage to get a theatrical release. For the latest gallery installations please see our Exhibitions page.
