Future Shorts Winter Season at INKTo celebrate the beginning of the cold season INK Restaurant in East London is hosting its first ever open films and food night. It will be screening the short films selection carefully chosen by the world's biggest pop-up film festival and distribution label, Future Shorts. There will be seasonal food, mulled wine and winter fairies greeting the attendees at the door. Those who come in festive attire (knitwear, green, hats - you decide) can expect a little something extra special.
Future Shorts is recognised as the first and largest global pop-up film festival, which represents the diverse nature of its audience. The international stories selected for Future Shorts Winter Season programme have been acknowledged by Sundance Film Festival, Adelaide Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Eastern Oregon Film Festival and other renowned film organisations.
At East London's INK, visual aesthetics and attention to detail are just as important as locally sourced fresh ingredients. Taking the guests on a different dining experience every night, the head chef and founder, Martyn Meid focused on textures, colours, seasonality and taste. When creating his dishes, Meid finds inspiration in architecture, music as well as moving picture. The private film viewings at INK have happened before and are not a new element in its existence. However, the Films, Food & Fairies night will be the restaurant's first public short films night since the opening.
Children over 12 are welcome.
