Apne Film Club

Apne Film Club are reviving and archiving the South Asian cinema clubs that were found wherever migrated populations settled in the UK in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. A hall or cinema was hired, reels were brought in (or VHS later) and everyone would come together to spend a day watching a golden age classic or the latest hit. With samosa and chai flowing and talking throughout the picture, it was as much a space to build community and connect to a sense of home as it was to just simply watch a film.
