Dartmouth Park Film Club

NEWSLETTER #18 - 11/03/2022

Dear DPFC People. 

At last the Dartmouth Park Film Club is back. We tried to do it a year ago but Covid conspired against us. This time we're confident we can make the date: Wednesday 4th May. 

It will be an evening with multi award-winning, constantly critically acclaimed Dartmouth Park documentary maker Vanessa Engle.  She made films about - among others - Ray Davies of the Kinks, Mervyn Peake and Sarah Lucas - and that was all before she started to get to grips with films which - in her words - "explore our fundamental values and belief systems": feminism, left wing politics, Anglo-Jewry, money, health, all got in her sights. And during lockdown she completed The Unbelievable Story of Carl Beech, which told the jaw-dropping story of a man who claimed to have been the victim of a high-profile paedophile ring. We'll show clips from Vanessa's films and hear from her about her career as a documentary filmmaker. 

People pay good money to come and spend an evening with a filmmaker like this and see some of her work. But, as you know, at DPFC, you pay what you think it is worth and you get a glass of wine - the quality of which has only improved over the lockdown. All profits from the event will support the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian appeal.

-> Weds May 4
-> 7pm 
-> First in, first served
-> Highgate Library Civic & Cultural Centre, NW5 1HB

We're excited to get our lovely local film club going again. 

Hope to see you there!

Lizzie, Christo, Matt, Jodi and Navene
