|Event Name||London Film-Makers Co–op 50th Anniversary and Book Launch|
|Start Date||24th Nov 2016 7:00pm|
Screening of rarely screened 16mm film works.
The London Film-Makers' Coop (LFMC) was founded in October 1966 as a non-commercial distributor and film laboratory for avant-garde cinema. Within this unique facility, film-makers were able to control every aspect of the creative process. Many explored the material aspects of celluloid, whilst others experimented with multiple projection and performance-based ‘expanded cinema’. This artist-led organisation asserted the significance of British work internationally, and anticipated today’s vibrant culture of artists’ moving image. This programme features 16mm film works by Malcolm Le Grice, Lis Rhodes, Jeff Keen, Guy Sherwin, Gill Eatherley, Annabel Nicolson and others, introduced by Mark Webber.
The book ‘Shoot Shoot Shoot: The First Decade of the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative 1966-76’ (LUX, 2016), edited by Mark Webber, has been published by LUX to celebrate the LFMC’s 50th anniversary, it brings together texts, interviews, images and a large number of archival documents in exploring the history of the early years of the organisation.
Entry is FREE to staff and students of The University of Brighton and University of Sussex (ID required), otherwise £5 payable on the door.
