Announcement from H-Japan:
Since 2005, Close-Up has established itself as a unique film resource.
Our guiding principle is to provide access for everyone to film culture
and history through our library, film screenings and publication of
Our catalogue of over 17,000 films and books is
unrivalled and our regular screenings are renowned for supporting and
developing the exhibition of independent and experimental cinema in
London. Close-Up wholly incorporates the prestigious film journal
Vertigo, the archive of which has been fully revised and made completely
available for free online.
Our new project is the creation of an
independent cinema in the East End of London. The programme will
consist of repertory cinema and the presentation of radical new artists'
films and videos. We have recently secured a venue and the cinema is
planned to open in Autumn 2013.
Run on a non-profit basis the
company reinvests all its revenue to maintain the continuing growth of
this invaluable film resource. In the current economic climate your
contribution is essential in enabling us to continue this work. It will
help us to continue to build the catalogue of our extensive library,
further publication of Vertigo Magazine and with the future development
of our new cinema.
