Screen Social: Farewell Fujifilm Shorts 09.01.13

By January 1, 2013Screen Social, SS Events

Farewell to Fujifilm Shorts
A Screen Social special

Screen Social opens a film-fueled 2013 with an exclusive ‘Best Of’ selection from the acclaimed Fujifilm Shorts, introduced by Fujifilm’s Jerry Deeney. This Screen Social is also part of the London Short Film Festival.

Due to reduced demand for motion picture film stock, the competition screened its final entries in 2012, so this special screening is a little nut of history in an ever-growing digital shell. Film is dead, long live film!

There’ll also be a chance to take away a rare Fujifilm Shorts DVD on the night.

The Book Club also serves food so turn up early and grab a table for the night.

Screen Social: Farewell Fujifilm Shorts
Wednesday 9th January
The Book Club, 100 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4RH
Doors open at 7pm. Get in early and grab a table or hang back at the bar.
