THE NEW SOCIAL

‘The New Social’ is an independent London-based collective that curates public film screenings, talks, and special projects as a way to collectively think through contemporary forms of identity and belonging.

The current running programme of films and talks, under the umbrella of NEW EAST CINEMA takes a look across Russian and the former Soviet territories to uncover how new social identities are being played out on film in the post socialist era. The screenings and events take place at Calvert 22 and the Barbican.

NEW EAST FILM FESTIVAL

An annual film festival to create a showcase of contemporary cinema from Russian and the former Soviet territories, to celebrate and highlight the diversity of unconventional approaches in film-making. Bringing most recent films by emerging and established filmmakers from the International festival circuit, the festival will take place in London early March 2017 and will then travel around the country.

The festival will be a boutique festival that will focus on quality rather than quantity. While carefully selecting the most fascinating titles we will ensure to create an interesting programme of Q&As and talks around the films. We will be inviting all the directors to attend the festival.
