⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ SATURDAY APRIL 4, 10PM-1AM BST ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️

⚠️⚠️⚠️ DJ HTSHELL presents "MINIATURE BREAKDOWN Chapter One: Swamp Hag's Junkyard of Doom" ⚠️⚠️⚠️

An online DJ party via Jitsi.

If joining on desktop, just go to: https://meet.jit.si/MiniatureBreakdown

If joining on mobile, listen to the YouTube livestream above for the music!
And via the Jitsi Meet app, you can look at all of us online, but you won't hear anything through there.
So really it's just easier to use a computer!

UPDATE: This was really great, thanks to those who came. Unfortunately, YouTube did a copyright strike against the livestream about 90 minutes in. Tried to use as much open source software as possible to make this work but algorithms killed the party! Will think of an alternate system for the next one.

Launched in January 2020, a regular newsletter/online publication I've started called Rep Cinema International, focusing on repertory and archival film programming around the world. It's a mix of repertory programming highlights, news, interviews with programmers, archivists and others who are invested in getting older films to screens both locally and internationally. It's a vibrant new publication and I hope you'll subscribe.
