Of course with great power comes great responsibility. While we want to retain the feeling of the original nights. The informal atmosphere. The anything goes quality control. The desire to give anyone a chance. Matt Prendergast off the leash. The focus on chatting and mingling as much as the films. We have had to narrow the field when it comes to choosing films as the projection is so shit hot at the Art House that we can't show stuff shot on camcorders or with poor sound. Particularly our own stuff. That is why we went for the Hob. It's a bigger venue with it's own projection and sound system but it has an easy going attitude similar to the Hideaway where we can still give almost anyone a chance to get their film shown. And it means we can cherry pick from the Hob selection and give a few of the films the chance to be shown at the sexy Art House.
All has gone well so far. Both Hob night have been success and the first Art House night was a sell out with 15 people on the waiting list. It remains to be seen whether or not it was a one off or a new trend. Hopefully the latter. The next nights are May 6th (Art House) and May 14th (The Hob) so hopefully see you at one of those. And keep sending us your films. firstname.lastname@example.org
