On an icy March evening, getting Londoners to schlep to Deptford is no easy feat. But the chance to see Riley Stearns cult 2014 masterpiece FAULTS was enough to drive everyone into GOF’s favourite cinema for a thrilling evening of cinematic entertainment. We’ve raved about this film enough, so I won’t go into the ins and outs, only to say it is an amazing film – and you should try your very hardest to watch it!
‘Girls on Films Presents…’ first screening was a sold-out success, big thanks to everyone who came and supported us. A special thank you to the Deptford Cinema team. They work tirelessly (for no money) to provide a great cultural space for the people of London. You can support the cinema by helping out on one of their ‘build days’ or simply buying a ticket to one of their many amazing screenings.
We have been lucky enough to have forged a relationship with Riley, a man with amazing drive to not only create but promote top quality filmmaking, which is admiring and should be encouraged (heck, isn’t that the reason you’re reading this now?!). His film provided us with not only a gripping narrative but a complex and textured female character which seldom makes it way to audiences. Bravo Riley. He so kindly provided a few words to say before the screening which we thought were just lovely enough to share with you:
If this is the first time you’re seeing Faults I hope you enjoy it and spread the word. And if you’ve seen it before, I deeply appreciate the fact that out of all the films out there that you love or haven’t seen, you’re sitting here in this theater with other human beings and watching it again.
Hope everyone who came enjoyed the thrills of FAULTS, thanks again – look forward to the next one!
