The First Film Club Announces Return

The First Film Club is thrilled to be back at Picturehouse for their fourth event, with the first theatrical public screening of Nia DaCosta’s debut feature “LITTLE WOODS” and Karl Jackson’s short film “INDEPENDENCE”. Founded by Hanna Flint (critic, broadcaster and author) and Natalie Louise (film & television producer) the FIRST FILM CLUB celebrates directorial debuts by showcasing short films from emerging directors as well as feature debuts from established filmmakers. 

On Wednesday 12 April, the FIRST FILM CLUB will host a screening of Nia DaCosta’s award-winning directorial debut, “Little Woods”, and Karl Jackson’s BFI NETWORK funded short film “Independence”.. After the films, both directors will take part in a live discussion and Q&A chaired by FIRST FILM CLUB co-founder, author and critic, Hanna Flint. 

To close out the evening, a post-screening drinks reception, sponsored by TRIPLE EXPOSURE, provides an opportunity to celebrate the filmmakers, connect over the films and encourage future industry collaborations. 

On the relaunch co-founders commented: 

“We couldn’t be more delighted for the First Film Club to return with two such exciting filmmakers whose work challenges, excites and reminds audiences of the power of cinema.  Bringing together film fans and industry peers to watch these excellent films, then hear the filmmakers get candid about their filmmaking processes, is sure to be a real celebration of the film community, female-led stories and the theatrical experience.” 

Co-founder Hanna Flint

“Film at its core is about collaboration,  and whether you’re looking for inspiration for your next big idea, embarking on a career as a filmmaker or looking to share the cinema experience with others, the First Film Club is the place to be.” 

Co-founder Natalie Louise
