Mascara Film Club


Mascara Film Club is an artist-run film club, which mostly takes place in North-East London. Taking place outside both film festival circuits and institutional art spaces, we screen artists’ moving image in more convivial contexts. We understand film screenings defined less as the relation between film and spectators in hushed rooms, but rather as performative and social events where the critical intimacies of friendship and community can come to the fore. Through our programming we seek to bring into conversation films and people, and foster a self-organised infrastructure for moving image practitioners.


Mascara Film Club is currently organised by Kasia Lukasik, Rufus Rock and Daisy Smith.

‘And the children? She gave them the power of the noise. She gave them information. The disease!’

A series of shorts that turn on fictive hinges (they creak). We present eight works in which absurd worlds rooted in the familiar offer estranged viewpoints, interrupted translations and weird protests. Including films by Cyrus Hung, Geraldine Snell, Sid Smith, Keren Cytter, Harriet Rickard, Callum Hill, Mikhail Karikis and Charlie Fegan. Hacked documents, pirated myths and stolen diaries make for sh-sh-shaky systems.
