The UCL Film & TV Society turns 70 this year - and we are celebrating with a very special evening of events marking the anniversary on Sunday, March 18, including a special screening of Christopher Nolan's 'Following'!

WHEN: Sunday, 18th of March, 7:30pm

WHERE: Cruciform LT1, Gower St, London WC1E 6BT (no longer on Wilkins Terrace due to weather conditions)

Following is a wickedly clever story of how a young man's obsession with following people leads him into a dark underworld. Bill (Jeremy Theobald), the unlikely hero, is a marginalized but intriguing Everyman who follows strangers at random on the street. When Cobb (Alex Haw), a man Bill has been following, catches him in the act, Bill is drawn into Cobb's world of breaking into flats and prying into the personal lives of their victims. In Cobb, Bill finds a strange companion, part mentor, part confessor and part evil twin. With an ingenious structure that involves flashforwards and doubling back, the film tests our knowledge and understanding just as the protagonist is being duped into an elaborate triple-cross.

The film was partly shot and produced at the society: the 16mm camera and Steenbeck editing suite used on the film still remain in our studio to this day and Nolan, along with his wife & producing partner Emma Thomas, actor Jeremy Theobald and composer David Julyan, were all previously society members!

This screening is open to all UCL students and staff.

This event will follow a special 70th Anniversary Drinks Reception at the North Cloisters - celebrating FilmSoc's achievements past and present with current members as well as alumni and supporters. Find out more and RSVP at
