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 ‘Gatherings I’ Video still 1: Two women speak to camera sitting on the floor of an apartment. The caption reads ‘In this exact moment.’ Video still 2: A figure with a black covering over their head is overlaid on a collaged background of a field. The caption reads, ‘I’m just trying to pass.’

In a time not a time, and a place not a place  

Join us on the Leap Day for the first edition of Gatherings, with an afternoon programme of performance, readings and screenings. Gatherings is a new and ongoing event series by Mascara Film Club exploring the intersection of Performance and Artists Moving Image. The series looks to foreground these time-based media as open, social and communal events. Hosted by San Mei Gallery, this inaugural edition of Gatherings takes as its subject the use of scripts and artist writing within video and performance.

Please note that this event will not be taking place in our regular location, but at San Mei Gallery in Brixton. Given that we won’t be hosted in a bar, we’ve decided this will be a sober event. Instead, we will be providing some delicious vegan food!
