A Nos Amours

A Nos  Amours

was founded in 2011 by Joanna Hogg and Adam Roberts, to present film screenings events that might foster love and understanding of cinema. The little seen and the underappreciated would be privileged, as would be the grey zone between cinema auditorium and art space.

The first screening was a pop-up in a disused and unheated shop space in the middle of winter.  This was Maurice Pialat's film A Nos Amours, which provided a name for the project.

Further screenings followed, introduced  by artists, enthusiasts, experts and academics - such as by Jacques Ranciere, Laura Mulvey, Carol Morely, Will Self, Geoff Dyer, Deboarh Levy, Olaf Möller, Julie Myerson, George Szirtes, Marina Warner,  Augustus Casely-Heyford,  Terry Gilliam, and Richard Ayoade. Also presenting have been volunteers with no experience of public speaking.
