Alternative Cinema is the online intersection between the divergent subcultures of British independent, underground, experimental, protest, cult, Avant- Garde, D.I.Y. and Artist’s film and video. It’s an event listings guide which covers the film club scene through to pop-up cinemas, microcinemas, gallery installations, local film festivals and pub screenings. If you want to join the audience, this is the gate to the spectacular and subversive realm of alternative cinema.

The minimum requirement is that your event must be some kind of alternative to the commercial mainstream feature film industry.

Inappropriate listings will be removed.

We're proud to be presenting the highly acclaimed, highly anticipated KAFKA'S FREAKS: a performance drama act by @nikolas.vagion, for the first time in the UK. 
Three heroes trapped in a circus cage, denounce the whole system and resist the conditions that have been forced upon them, defying the fear of mental, social and political abuse, by means of personal journeys and histories, with strength, sarcasm and pride. Self-knowledge is the passport to catharsis and personal freedom. 

Based on three Kafka's novels - Report to an Academy, The Hunger Artist & Metamorphosis. 
Adapted, directed & performed by Nikolas Vagion
