As part of the Hackney Wick Takeover at the Victoria and Albert Museum The Lab Film Festival is proud to present a selection of artist’s films, documentaries, discussions and performances. 

On Friday 28th February 6:30-9:30 the V&A will be taken over by groups from all across Hackney Wick!  For this The Lab Film Festival will fill the Lydia and Manfred Gorvy 300-seater Lecture Theatre with a special selection of films and performance. Not to be missed!

This colourful collection of artist’s narrative, animation, documentary, and experimental film, punctuated with live performance and practice discussion, provides a taste of the vibrant atmosphere in which these artists struggle and survive, and offers a rare window onto the working practice of moving image makers.

With a focus on the fragments of forgotten and ignored whimsical details, and the threatened histories of mnemonic cultural experiences, which construct the hidden cultural fabric of the region.

Featuring film works from:

Sarah Scarsbrook
Bill Aitchison
Gascoyne Estate Film Club
Anton Katz and the Green Light Film Club
