Our first ever print edition is here!
Small, papery and full of cinematic love
Say hello to the first print edition of Industria (though not the first issue of the ‘zine itself). Over the years we’ve published nine editions on iPad (remember reading magazines on iPads? Don’t worry, almost nobody does) and we have this website and some socials but this is the first time we’ve ever committed our love for film and cinematic culture to ink and paper. Together with my co-editors Richard Galpin and Jake Cunningham and our Creative Director Finbar Lenahan we are part of a London-based creative agency who work in film and entertainment, on-set and off. We spend most of our waking hours making content for amazing films and TV shows like Gangs Of London, I Hate Susie Too, The Banshees of Inisherin, Triangle Of Sadness and Avatar, so Industria is a chance for us to make some content just for ourselves and by extension, for you. We live and work in London, and with the city experiencing an explosion in international film and TV production investment, it felt like a no-brainer to dedicate this issue of Industria to the film city we call home.
Flicking through the pages of the magazine you will find actor Jimmy Akingbola, filmmaker John Ogunmuyiwa, screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns and on-set chef Saul Brutton showing us their favourite London location, film journalist extraordinaire Ian Freer diving into Hitchcock’s Frenzy as it celebrates its 50th anniversary, a photo-essay by director Alice Russell about her new film If The Streets Were On Fire and culture maven Lillian Crawford guiding us on a journey through the jazz soaked city streets of post-War British film. You’ll also find a sheet of stickers showing some of our favourite London cinemas and at the back of the book, The Nun, The Hallow and Gangs Of London director Corin Hardy draws this issue to a close by penning our imaginary awards speech – “I’d Like To Thank”.
There’s a lot of love crammed into the pages of the ‘zine – if you’d like one drop me an email at [email protected] and as long as we still have some in the office I’ll send you one out. Otherwise, if you live in London you can pick a copy up for free at London branches of Picturehouse (Central, Ritzy, Clapham, Greenwich and Hackney) and Curzon (Soho, Bloomsbury, Mayfair and Wimbledon). If you see one in the wild please take a pic and share it with us.
