JOIN THE HUNT FOR ADVENTUROUS MOVING PICTURES AT RADIANTCIRCUS.COM
“The only listing in London worth following right now.” (indie cinema)
RADIANT CIRCUS is creating an online guide to London’s DIY, indie and alternative movie nights, film events and gallery screenings.
We cover everything from one-off events by indie programmers and pop-ups to regular film clubs, festivals, seasons and underground venues.
Follow us into the darkness to find cinematic oddities of all shapes and sizes, including:
- cult classics & mainstream curiosities;
- micro-budget marvels & genre-bending horror shows;
- archival re-releases & sensational silents;
- world cinema treasures & feature-length docs;
- animation, video art & experimental film.
We pick the finest attractions each month and invite you to experience them with us.
CHASING THE LIGHT“It’s really difficult keeping everyone informed of what we’re doing.” (indie film promoter)
We started RADIANT CIRCUS in 2016, blogging our way around London to find the best of what's on. Our regular guides, writeups and recommendations at radiantcircus.com are the breadcrumbs of our search.
From talking to London's moving image makers, programmers and venue owners, it's clear that the city needs a more comprehensive screen listings service for its alternative attractions – a go-to place for audiences to find out what's on where each day.
We want RADIANT CIRCUS to be that place – and we really want to build it with you.
Income from our monthly memberships will take our coverage of London's alternative screens to the next level. We hope you will join us.
WHY PATREON?“I love it. Keep up the amazing work.” (twitter follower)
Like all creators, we need to put what we do on a sustainable footing, generating enough income so that we can continue to blog. We also want to expand our screen coverage so that we can do our part to build bigger (and bolder) audiences for London's alternative attractions.
We have already installed an off-the-peg calendar on our site to make it easier for our friends to follow our recommendations. Creating a more comprehensive listings service will take significantly more time, tech and resources. This is where you come in.
Income from memberships will flow directly into reaching our goals.
- GOAL 1: When we reach 350 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will be fully sustainable in our current form & we will be able to continue to do what we do.
- GOAL 2: When we reach 600 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will be able to hire a web developer to build a comprehensive daily screen listings service for London's alternative attractions, greatly expanding our coverage.
- GOAL 3: When we reach 1,000 monthly members at General Admission or higher, RADIANT CIRCUS will be able to stage FREE members-only screenings as a (huge) thank you for your support.
MEMBERSHIP REWARDSNever miss a frame with a RADIANT CIRCUS membership.
- General Admission (c. £2.99 per month) gets all of our SCREEN GUIDES and posts sent directly to your inbox and gives you access to exclusive members-only events and updates. As a fully paid-up member you will help ensure the future of RADIANT CIRCUS.
- Grandstand Membership (c. £5.99 per month) is for those that can afford a little bit more each month. You get the same benefits as General Admission plus exclusive discounts for indie events as well as SPECIAL FEATURES where we meet the working acts behind the screens.
- Ringside Membership (c. £9.99 per month) is our top tier of membership. In addition to the same benefits as Grandstand Membership, you will also receive recognition on our website as a valued member of our RADIANT CIRCUS Founding Family (should you want it).
CONTENT WARNINGAlthough everything at RADIANT CIRCUS is nice and cuddly (ish...), we don't filter our handpicked recommendations by certificate. All members must therefore be aged 18 or over.
“With your support, RADIANT CIRCUS will do our bit to build bigger (and bolder) audiences for adventurous moving pictures in London. In turn, that will help more image makers, programmers and venues do what they do best – set our eyeballs spinning with stunning screen content. We are hugely grateful for your support and look forward to meeting you in the dark aisles of a screening somewhere soon.”
