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 the Depot Kino Collective curate their own choice of films for young adults.

Summer of Music: Jazz

This summer, we celebrate music on-screen with a series of the finest jazz films ever made. The films in this season celebrate this vibrant genre, while also offering powerful depictions of the human dramas taking place off-stage.

Satyajit Ray Mini-Season

A master of his craft and generous in spirit, Satyajit Ray remains a classic star of world cinema, excelling as a director, scriptwriter and composer. This August, we showcase two of the best films from his catalogue.

Star Trek Mini-Season

Join us as we boldly go where no Depot has gone before! Our Star Trek mini season is sure to leave you energised as we screen the original Star Trek motion picture – a true classic – and as its much loved sequel, The Wrath of Khan, in new 4K director’s cuts.

Pre-Code Hollywood: Rules Are Made to be Broken

Before the Hollywood censors decided to enforce the rules around sexuality, violence, drugs and hard living, a group of films we now call the Pre-Codes tested the boundaries by breaking every single one of them. This season showcases three of the best.

Artwave at Depot: Water

To celebrate Artwave at Depot, we’re showcasing three films that tie in with this year’s theme of ‘Water’, including a 3D screening of Ang Lee’s sublime Life of Pi; Céline Sciamma’s tender coming-of-age drama, Water Lilies; and Wes Anderson’s beloved cult classic The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

Women Over 50 Film Festival 2022

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) champions and showcases the work of older women on screen and behind the camera with an annual short film festival and year round events and film screenings, and we’re over the moon to be hosting their 2022 festival right here at Depot.

Check back soon for more information.


Cinelogue is a brand new film strand for Depot, screening arthouse, independent and cult films while engaging in discussion on issues surrounding film and cinema culture.

Depot Kino Collective

Depot Kino Collective 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.

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).
