NXDFFF-2015 logo

For the second year,
we are thrilled to be part of the
Last year, we all crammed into the Upstairs Gallery at the Amersham Arms…
… but this year we are pleased to say we have the downstairs room, where everyone will be able to get a seat!

Free entry as always!
We meet monthly, to watch a film that passes the Bechdel Test. To pass, a film must:
1. have at least two [named] women in it
2. who talk to each other
3. about something that isn’t a man


For April’s NXDFFF screening we’ll be watching Gina Price-Bythewood’s Love & Basketball (2000). The film mainly follows Monica, played by Sanaa Lathan. Monica is obsessed with basketball and wants to play professionally, as does her neighbour Quincy, played by Omar Epps. Their experiences in the female and male worlds of professional basketball are worlds apart though!

Hope to see you there!

Laetitia Sonami is a renowned composer, performer and sound artist. She studied under Joel Chadabe and Eliane Radigue, and Eliane Radigue composed the piece Occam IX for her in 2013.  She is known for working with new instruments, in particular the Lady’s Glove, a pioneering sensor instrument for bringing the human body into the performance of electronic music. Her work combines text, music and found sound in compositions which have been described as “performance novels”.



Lucy Railton’s solo cello sets don’t just involve playing the cello, they play the room, and vibrate every molecule in it, exploring every hidden resonance and micro-texture. She has recently been touring with Russell Haswell, and has performed with Chris Watson, Lee Patterson, Jennifer Walshe, Kit Downes, Hannah Perry, and countless more. In addition to performing, as an organiser of the Kammer Klang nights and the London Contemporary Music Festival, Lucy Railton has been making amazing musical things happen in London for years.



Patricia Alessandrini and Richard Craig; Patricia s a composer who works with live electronics and interactive multimedia, engaging with concert music repertoire and exploring issues of representation, perception and memory. Her compositions have been played at festivals across the world, and she has worked with institutions such as GRM and IRCAM. Richard is a flautist and new music performer who has performed with groups such as ELISION, Musikfabrik and Klangforum Wien at international festivals including the Venice Biennale, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the Festival D’Automne in Paris and the Lincoln Center Festival New York.


The performances of Quitters are a thing of true wonder. Imagine, if you will, a heartbroken Ivor Cutler hijacking an R n B Karaoke. Tears of joy and sadness are cried, and nothing is quite the same afterwards.



Álvaro Sarasúa is visiting EAVI from the Music Technology Group (UPF) in Barcelona where he is a member of the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra, exploring novel ideas in network music. He works in a variety of bands including Freakenders, UMO, Nomo and Audiolepsia. For EAVI XII he will be performing a solo version of CliX Redux, a piece that the Barcelona Laptop Orchestra performed in Sónar 2013.

Friday 22 May : “Beastie Boys – Awesome! I Fuckin’ Shot That” – an experience!

Is it possible to recreate the exhilaration and atmosphere of a live gig using concert movie footage? This May we launch a series of events to prove that immersive movie visuals can create thrilling ‘live’ experiences.

015 05 22 BBDeptford Film Club:


In 2006 the Beastie Boys handed out 50 cameras to audience members at their sold-out performance in New York’s famed Madison Square Garden.


Together, these 50 different perspectives make up the concert movie “Awesome! I Fuckin’ Shot That”.

Now for the first time in history, you are invited to travel back in time to experience that concert – live on film. Screened using stunning 360° movie visuals, dry ice and mind-altering atmosphere, this is a wild journey deep inside the world of a live Beastie Boys show, capturing the exhilarating experience of a live musical performance.

WARNING! This experience will be loud. There will be no seats. This experience is made of film, but you’ve got to bring the energy of a gig.

Ticket price includes free entry to WHIP IT! club night at Amersham Arms. £5 online or £10 on the door.
