Exploding Cinema is a screening collective that emerged from the underground art squat scene in 1991. Self organised regular open access screening nights of short film, underground cinema, artists moving image and performance art.

In that time, more than five thousand no-budget films/videos have been shown in squats, pubs, clubs, cafes and church halls across the UK and around the world. We have staged one off shows in disused factories, office blocks, a circus tents, churches and in the deep end of a squatted Lido. Anyone can screen their film – anyone can join the collective.
