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 Vertigo magazine.
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.Donate:
