Fancy an aperitif with a DJ? Here you go, one the two festival Saturdays, from 12h to 16h, we’ll be waiting for you on the roof terrace of the Hotel Pulitzer. Vermouth, sun and fine music!
Meet La Cantina, a festival bar that will only exist while the festival is taking place (11 evenings in October and November) and whose objective is to become a natural meeting point among the public, festival team, filmmakers and anyone else that wants to stop by and say “hi!” in a very inclusive and sociable edition of the festival. Food created with film festivalgoers in mind, a great selection of music, lots of surprises and festival spirit are the bases upon which we’re gonna put up our pop-up bar: La Cantina.

Visual Phonic presents an audio-visual piece based on the essence of the seventh art, silent movies, and on the live creation of a new soundtrack for each film, using exclusively vinyl records. An interesting symbiosis is formed from the visual and expressive power of the silent film, and the strength of the music to accompany the images and evoke atmospheres and emotions.
A concept based on classic silent films, with a musical soundtrack selected especially for each film by an expert DJ, from among his vast record collection and played live on two turntables and a mixing desk, in the search for new creative performances.
The Visual Phonic soundtracks are musical expressions created especially and exclusively for a silent film, according to the artistic criteria of each DJ involved. They are structured and ordered like sonic phrases that strengthen the narrative thread of films in this era prior to sound, or which can even offer new interpretations and meanings.
Soundtrack: Javier Verdes
Film: A Page of Madness / 1926 / Teinosuke Kinugasa / Japan / 70 min
Free entrance until complete capacity

BUG returns for a third consecutive year to Beefeater In-Edit with a new showcase of music and videos, that shines a light on our spiritual home, London. BUG began life at the BFI Southbank in London, exploring the latest and most brilliant, strangest and sometimes completely extraordinary video clips and carrying them to the cinema screen. Hosted by the writer, comedian, commentator and director Adam Buxton, this special show for Beefeater In-Edit 2016 is a prime opportunity to see some of the most iconic, British video clips on the big screen, and gawk at how their directors got inspired by London to make them.

All songs and images are stimuli looking for a response from whomever is listening or watching. At Beefeater In-Edit we’ve planned our chat with Don Letts like this: we’ll play him songs and images that he doesn’t know about in advance (but which are linked to his career), and he’ll respond with anecdotes, reflections and his habitual salt-shaker based on what he sees or hears.
