Celebrating 50 Years Of Super 8 With Raindance Film Festival and Don Letts


Following on from their brilliant short film partnership with Shortlist magazine, the Raindance Film Festival will be celebrating 50 years of Super 8, during a special evening with Don Letts.

The legendary film director, DJ and former manager of The Slits, will be previewing his latest project - Two 77's Clash, which looks at the myth and the reality of the 'punky-reggae party' (punk's only untold story). An influential figure in the early London punk scene and semi-responsible for introducing the reggae and dub acts that would later go on to influence the likes of The Clash and other bands, Letts is a truly pioneer of the genre. 

The evening will also see The Don dipping into his extensive Super 8mm archive to give a taste of what's to come from what he describes as "a black n' white story told in glorious colour"...

This will follow a Super 8 punk party at The Social with a very special DJ set from Don Letts, Douglas Hart  and live music from Telegram.

Screening at Vue Piccadilly, starting at 6:30pm, with after party at The Social, 5 Little Portland Street
