The summer season of identikit blockbuster movies with their
samey, swishy effects and bloated marketing budgets is soon upon
us, leaving many great films made on tiny money but with masses of
heart, to disappear with little trace.
But new company Bright Young Things Film Club started by
industrious duo Bridget Arsenault (Vanity Fair sub-editor and
online writer) and Fatima Martinez-Moxon (European Project
Coordinator for Tane jewellerey), are making it their job to
champion the silver screen underdogs. BYT Film Club aims to
support the little guys, by giving movies that might never get a
general release the chance for a glamorous screening and a bit of
red-carpet action. The next soirée on the schedule is
Wednesday 30th April when
documentary Sweet Dreams will be screened.
The film is a story about Tutsi and Hutu Rwandan women who despite
the divide and devastation of the 1994 Genocide, come together to
form the country's first all-female drumming troupe and Rwanda's
first ever ice-cream shop.
Sweet Dreams screening will be held at The May
Fair Hotel, with peach Ciroc belinis for starters, a stash of
comestible goodies on each seat (Propercorn, Unoco coconut water
and Green & Blacks chocs) followed by a skype-live Q&A with
director Rob Fruchtman and a party after. BYT Film Club has
created a great night that gives talented filmmaking the fanfare it
so often deserves.
