Talk about Sands Films Studio

September 2022 · News

The News From Nowhere Club presents ‘We Live and Breathe Film’: Sands Films Studio on Saturday 8th October 2022 at 20.00.

Sands Films Studio must be unique in the world. Within its c18th listed building in Rotherhithe, it has, since 1975, housed an international period costume workshop, a weekly film club (free, donations invited), film-making studio for hire, music performances, book launches, political debates, theatre productions, such as the anti-war The Good Soldier Schwejk (2018), and made its own films featuring top actors. The Rotherhithe Picture Research Library (non-digital) is, as an educational trust, open to all at no cost. Every inch of the substantial interior is full of colour and interest. Sands is committed to the non-commercial provision of the best in film and performance. Olivier Stockman, one of its directors, who has worked there since 1980, will tell us what it’s like to be closely involved, and show excerpts of some of their productions and events.

Speaker: Olivier Stockman, Chair: Margaret Winniak, long-time Sands attender’
