On the 50th anniversary of the formation of The London Film-Makers’ Co-operative, Frieze Video presents a new short film about the influential organisation.

About

Formed on October 13th 1966, the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) grew out of a series of screenings in the basement of counter-culture book store, Better Books, on Charing Cross road to become a pioneering organisation incorporating a film workshop, cinema space and distribution office. Radical in its early ideals, the Co-op played a crucial role in establishing moving image as an art form in the UK and internationally.

To celebrate the LFMC's 50th anniversary, Frieze Video presents Soft Floor, Hard Film, a new short film about the organisation written and directed by artist and writer Matthew Noel-Tod.

The screening will be followed by a discussion between Noel-Tod, former LFMC members Malcolm Le Grice and Lis Rhodes, and film curator Mark Weber, and a screening of Light Music (1975), Rhodes's iconic – and rarely seen – expanded cinema work.
