Mascara Film Club


Mascara Film Club is an intermittent artist-run film club, which takes place in a bar in North-East London. We screen artists’ moving image in more convivial contexts, batting our lashes to the rhythm of the unexpected, the seductive, the challenging, the political, the overlooked and the underseen.  

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