The Picture Show at the End of the World

Online film screening event plus Q&A 

(FOR UPDATE AND RECORDING SEE BELOW)

Welcome in the beginning of winter with a Dark Mountain-slanted light show. Hosted by filmmaker Jonny Randall, the online event will showcase some of the submissions weve received in response to our call-out for uncivilised films earlier this year.

A selection of short films will be screened over the course of an hour, featuring: visual poetry; a cinematic meditation on the Cairngorms; surreal eco-horror animation; a collaborative ritual between artist and tree; voices on what it means to re-indigenise and a multispecies ethnographic collaboration between humans and donkeys.  

The films will be followed by a post-screening conversation with some of the filmmakers, as well as a chance for you to ask questions and offer reflections around our cinematic hearth. 

 To celebrate the films, we invite you to join us for this online screening event on Friday 6th Novemberfrom 19:00 to 21:00 GMT. While it’s a shame that we cangather physically in a cinema, were excited to welcome filmmakers and viewers from around the world. 

The event is free but you must register on this Eventbrite page to ensure a place. You will receive a private Vimeo link to the films and a Zoom meeting link for the post-film discussion at 7pm today 6th November, instead of in the order confirmation as stated earlier. Apologies if there has been any confusion!

 If you would like to donate to the project we would gratefully accept donations via our ‘Get involved’ page. 

UPDATE:  if you were not able to come or would like to watch again, here is a recording of the film collection and post-screening conversation:
