KinoVan brings archive alive on the road
Film London are bringing the best of your local film history to the streets thanks to the KinoVan, a mobile cinema that’s taking London’s 15 outer boroughs by storm!
With the advent of cinema at the turn of the twentieth century, local authorities desperate to get public health messages out to the crowded London streets spotted an opportunity: take the message to the people – in a van.
Film London thought that they were such a good idea, they’d bring them back – showcasing gems from local film archives, showing how life was lived in each area and how the city has changed over the years.
Upcoming KinoVan events:
Bruce Castle Museum | 14 February 2015, local history fair
Bruce Castle Museum | 28 March 2015, Double Bill: The Vintage Fair & Kino Van at the Castle
Park Road, Cheam | 16 May 2015, Cheam Charter Fair
Bell Square, Hounslow | 15 August 2015
Valence House Museum | 29 August 2015
Sourced from amateur and professional films, the curated film programmes showcase London’s vibrant past through a mix of newsreels, films by local societies and home movies, captured on everything from Super-8 to VHS. As well as showing London life on film, Film London wants you to donate your films and home movies.
Want to bring archive magic to your local area or event? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit from the KinoVan. With enough notice we can even curate a special bespoke programme for you!
The KinoVan forms a key part of London’s Screen Archives’ major three-year project London: A Bigger Picture, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
