What we're about
About four years ago, I realised that I hadn’t seen many Asian films released into cinemas or even onto DVD for quite some time.
I soon discovered that most films from Asia, unless they’ve picked up an award somewhere, rarely see the light of day outside of their home countries, essentially meaning that here in the West, we’ve been deprived of a great deal of high quality cinema.
There are dramas, thrillers and comedies that have never been released here, not because they are poor films or don’t translate well but simply because distribution deals for these films simply don’t exist.
That was the main inspiration for starting this club. Chinese, Korean and Japanese cinema each have their own identity and by not seeing them, you're missing out.
It is not my intention to screen old classics that you can pick up in HMV or even the Asian films that you can stream through Netflix or Amazon. The idea is to screen modern films from Asia that, unless you have a particular interest in Asian Cinema, you may never have heard of.
The intention is to meet a minimum of once a month to screen these films at The Quadrant Pub right in the heart of Brighton.
IMPORTANT!If you plan to attend a specific screening, you must RSVP 'Yes' to that event. Likewise, if your plans change and you can no longer attend the screening please change the RSVP to 'No' and allow someone else to take your place.
I look forward to welcoming you to our screenings.
