Film seasons and threads

Depot collaborates with organisations like House Biennial, the BFI, Lewes U3A and The Japan Foundation to explore a diverse and fascinating programme of film seasons. We also present threads that showcase the best work from directors like David Lean, Sergio Leone and Alfred Hitchcock.

And our Depot Young Programmers curate their own choice of films for young adults.

Japan Foundation Touring Film Festival 2020

The Japan Foundation’s annual touring film programme returns in 2020 with an exciting showcase of Japanese cinema through the narrative framework of the ways in which people feel ‘happiness’. From recently released contemporary works, to anime and documentary, as well as classic masterpieces, the programme aims to demonstrate how uniquely people define the importance of happiness in their lives.  With an assortment of stories about people from different walks of life, it will also explore some burning issues existing in the current Japanese society, showcasing cinematic voices and skills of both the experienced and emerging filmmakers.

Robert’s Genre Club – Westerns

Depot is launching a major new retrospective on the Western film genre …

Cinemas of the Mind

Cinemas of the Mind meets monthly (on the second Monday of the month) for a post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr Jake Harvey, a forensic psychiatrist, and Jenny Leeburn, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. The discussion will focus on the psychological aspects of the film, and the emotional impact on the viewer – but the club is very much open to everyone and all perspectives, views and ideas are most welcome (indeed encouraged).

Depot Kino Club

Depot Kino Club is a group of young people dedicated to sharing an enthusiasm and knowledge of cinema through the hosting of specially selected screenings and events for young adults.

DKC produces and circulates its own marketing, organise events and aim to create unique, wider viewing opportunities for young people at the Depot. DKC screenings are curated, marketed and delivered by young people for young people, and shown once a month.
