Dedicated to film, video and the digital arts, The Lux - a non-profit organization - combines its year-round program of alternative cinema, exhibitions, events and festivals with help for emerging artists, by offering training programs and access to state-of-the-art production facilities. Situated in Hackney, The Lux is the place to be seen, with Sony, Channel 4 and Dazed and Confused having held receptions and screenings here, and Blur and Bjork using it for celebrity parties. Screenings range from art-house flicks, like Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures, and foreign language films, such as Vittanio De Sica's Umberto D, to credible mainstream titles like The Deer Hunter, while the gallery showcases up-and-coming international talent. Membership includes invites to private screenings, priority booking for special events and discounts on tickets, as well as access to the production facilities.
