THE FIRST FILM CLUB LOGO - Invert.jpg

THE FIRST FILM CLUB brings the film-loving community together to celebrate a diverse range of filmmakers by presenting the feature films that launched their careers.

 

Each screening event begins by showcasing the short film of an exciting, emerging filmmaker followed by the main presentation of an established director’s debut feature.

 

After both films have screened, guests will want to stick around for a special live Q&A where the directors will discuss their films and provide an insightful breakdown of the process, struggles and successes associated with the art of movie making.

 

The FIRST FILM CLUB was founded by three women in film, two of which are women of colour, who are committed to championing diverse filmmakers from all backgrounds

 

Our first event launched with Mike Leigh and a screening of BLEAK MOMENTS, with subsequent events welcoming Amma Asante and her debut A WAY OF LIFE, and GURINDER CHADHA with her first film BHAJI ON THE BEACH.
