The London Underground Film Festival – Opening Night


Step into the underground of film at the opening night party of what almost nobody is calling a journey into the Stygian waters of cinema, sound and performance…

As ever, it is an eclectic mix… see below:

Advanced, discounted tickets are available for 5GBP + booking fee from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/193422 or you can get tickets at the door for 8GBP.

London based electronic outfit Nói Kabát draw on inspiration from constructivism, futurism, 70’s science fiction, and noise theory to create a sound reminiscent of the early industrial pioneers. They combine noise from their environment with the sounds of esoteric electronic drums and analogue keyboards in an attempt to create an authentic yet newly reconfigured sound.
Pulp novelist, theorist of plagiarism, and former magus and sole member of the Neoist Alliance: the author of Blood Rites Of The Bourgeoisie (2010), Blow Job (1997), and Red London (1994), Stewart Home will be reading at us.http://www.stewarthomesociety.org/
The performance artist Stav B, who has performed at Behind Bars, Kaos, Brave Exhibtions, Act Art, the Hayward Gallery, and her own pop up cocktail bar, Stav B’s Liquor Bar, will be performing.

Wave, Body, Beat, Acid and beyond, with DJs from East London’s XENOGLOSSY.


DJs from label that brought us TEAM PISS and NURVUSS will be playing the mutant hip hop / drown-tempo.


The Opening Night Party will also be the launch of an exhibition of new works by Justyna Burzynska. A mixed media display of post-humour cyber folk. Unknown memes, neurotic graphics, visual poems and old fashioned illustration.


The London Underground Film Festival 1st – 4th December

The London Underground Film Festival 1st – 4th December

Celebrating the “obscure, no budget, low budget, genre and genreless”, the London Underground Film Festival is back at Bloomsbury’s Horse Hospital for another carnival of work originating from the lesser known fringes of cinema.

Featuring themed sessions ranging from the occult and witch-house aesthetics, to a talk/rant from Underground Cinema luminary and all round savant Duncan Reekie (who also curates an evening) via a documentary tribute to the musical landscape of Birmingham, the festival promises to be a treasure trove of undiscovered gems.

The Festival runs from the 1st to the 4th December and tickets are available via the website
