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.

Image description: Animated GIF of video stills from the screening ‘05’. Video still 1: A Christian nun dressed in her habit opens a small make up mirror in front of a wine coloured curtain and purple flowers. Video still 2: A woman with a human like mask gestures towards her heart on a Hong Kong street at dusk. Video still 3: A person wearing an elaborate carnival costume stands on a wooden bench in front of a field in the English countryside. Video still 4: A woman holds her hands up face forward looking to the side of the camera wearing a plain grey t shirt. The scene is dark and lit with blue light.

From the street to the film studio, Mascara Film Club presents four artists shorts that explore the performative capacities of costume, both as a tool to re-examine historical and fictional narratives as well as a strategy of current political protest.
