FORBIDDEN FILM FESTIVAL. London: New Cinema Club, 1969.

32mo. Stapled wrps., 32pp. Illustrated.

The scarce publicity programme for the New Cinema Club's Forbidden Film Festival, intended by its organisers "to bring the film makers face to face with the people who decided their work should not be shown" (ie. the British Board of Film Censors).

The Festival opened with 'The Trip' (refused a certificate by the BBFC) and included footage of the Living Theatre ('The Brig'), as well as screenings of Andy Warhol's 'The Chelsea Girls', Kenneth Anger's 'Scorpio Rising', and an 'All-Night Orgy of New Underground Movies' that included films by James Broughton, Michael Snow and Anthony Stern. The New Cinema Club was based in Wardour Street in Soho and grew out of specialised distributor the Short Film Service in 1967.

Initially running films three times a week at three different venues, the Forbidden Film Festival screenings, held between April and June 1969, were almost equally divided between the ICA at Nash House on The Mall and the Hanover Grand Film Theatre at 6 Hanover Street. The former included the first programme under the title 'An Evening with Steve Dwoskin', which later became a regular event.
