MOTION PICTURE provides free access into groundbreaking Film and Music.

MOTION PICTURE is made up of three elements: The Films, The DJs, and The Book. Pushing back on content dependent on trends, we offer longevity, committing to hosting quarterly events and being a firm fixture in present and future film and music.

Launched on October 25th 2017 at Boiler Room HQ in London, MOTION PICTURE began by showcasing 4 independent films and 6 unsigned DJ collectives. Check out the full line up here.

Since then, MOTION PICTURE has offered programming at the ICA's annual Playback Film Festival, showcasing Five Films Ahead of the Curve (see right). Hosted by award-winning documentary filmmaker Adeyemi Michael, Five Films Ahead of the Curve lead in-depth discussion with the filmmakers of tomorrow - focusing on funding tips, process and form, and how to achieve quality filmmaking with small budgets. 

Live Screening & Music Curation

Drawing from the Films, DJs and the Book, MOTION PICTURE delivers a space allowing the existing film community to interact, create opportunity to extend our family further, and ultimately provide free access to film screening and viewing.

We work to access the creative communities overlooked by institutions and festivals, and connect those who do not have easy access to the organisations who want to fund and platform quality programming.

Working across digital arts and the crossover of culture, MOTION PICTURE champions selectors and mixers, inviting our audiences to celebrate and push the DJs delivering sounds from the heart, to the people.

The Book

Challenging disposable digital culture, this series of books documents the contributors of each MOTION PICTURE edition. Creating a tangible piece of media allows us to appreciate documentary in physical form, letting you keep hold of honest content that does not rely on a digital host or database. This book hopes to help you feel ownership, permanency, and simply put, will serve as a reminder when we forget what it feels like to be part of and hold a piece of history.
