If you haven’t decided what you want to do tomorrow night, what not head down to the Book Club in east London for a rare, free night of film and dancing.

Dean Chalkley will be airing his new short film The New Faces (20mins) at 7.30pm tomorrow at the Book Club in Hoxton – doors open at 6.00pm. Chalkley’s short film “captures mod culture directly via those involved” and will be followed by a party until 2am. DJs include Jamie Parr, Si Cheeba (Black Cat) and Tomas McGrath, as well as Chalkley. Think rare soul, rhythm & blues, ska, Latin and boogaloo.

About the film: “The New Faces: A Short Filmsteps inside the minds of three young men captured in the enthrallment of a culture that they have fondly devoted themselves to. We are privy to their refreshingly honest, personal and polarised views, rooted in the ideology of a modernist culture.” Press release. There’s a Facebook page too.

The film will be hosted exclusively on SHOWstudio website from 9 March.
