'Keep It Under Your Hat' - a monthly night of music and poetry in East London is seeking short films!

'Keep It Under Your Hat' is a night of poetry and music hosted on the last Monday of every month in Biddle Bros in Clapton, London

Keen on building and expanding a creative community, we are focused on creating a safe space to share new work and foster collaborations.

Each night begins with a screening of projected films - we would like to share yours!

The title of this month's event is 'the heart is a metaphor',  and we take inspiration from an exceprt of Mindy Nettifee's poem ' The First Time':

Maybe no one ever told you,
But the heart IS a metaphor.
Yours is growing so strong
You’ll have your rhythm back any day now—

Loving like rumours spread.
Dreaming like lunatic spacemen jump from their suits.
Living like you never forgot how.

This May, as the sun flares and knocks out radio communication, while the aurora borealis illuminates the night sky, we are keen to see short film poems or artist films, or performative videos inspired by matters of the duality of the heart ; from explosive to healing, from movement to stillness, enlightenment, internal rhythms and somatic practice.   

Films should be no longer than 7 minutes long.

You can submit up to 5 videos. Please use one submission form per video.

Please do find us on Instagram if you'd like to join our community, and in case you might have something you think could work for a future night!

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
