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.

Mascara Film Club is beyond excited to be back with our first in person screening since February 2020.

Presenting four artist films drawing inspiration from the vernacular of pop music cultures to explore subjects ranging from machine intelligence, class, gender and memory, as well as personal and pop cultural mythology.

Algo-Rhythm (Manu Luksch, 2019) was shot in Dakar with the participation of leading Senegalese musicians, and probes the insidious but comprehensive threats to human agency posed by the rise of the quantification and algorithmic management of daily life. In In The Air Tonight (Andrew Norman Wilson, 2020) an urban legend about the Phil Collins hit induces an uncanny trip through 1980s LA. Dream English Kid 1964 – 1999 AD (Mark Leckey, 2015) presents a collage of what the Leckey calls “found memories” after he discovered a recording on YouTube of a Joy Division concert he attended as a teenager and realised that many of our past intimate memories are online. Very Important Trans Artwork, (Maz Murray, 2020) follows a trans person returning home to Basildon, Essex, at the start of a pandemic.
