It started as a small idea to do something social distanced outdoors during an unpredictable year of isolation and confusion. We had an old projector collecting dust, and simply looked for an old print to see if the thing still worked. Stumbling across an unexpectantly relevant old reel of Harold Lloyd's 'Just Neighbours, we decided to lace up the projector in our front garden and ask our wonderful neighbours if they wanted to watch from over the fence. 

Something special happened from this moment as we decided to keep screening every month.

From our screenings, Retroreel in partnership with Bigfaceart, is now in development making a community based mini series inspired by people, and inspired by vintage cinema which celebrates reel to reel filmmaking and most importantly their audiences and film loving loving communities of people.
