Day 2: View here

Presenting 14 films and moving image works from an

excellent group of artists and filmmakers, Biscuit Tin

has returned for its second year at EMBASSY gallery.

Biscuit Tin takes its name from the places where we hide the things that don’t have a place, yet we find ourselves holding on to. As there still in this thing, project, film, artwork, lies a value, something to feel and learn from, it’s just a matter of finding the right time and place for it, which is what we hope to do with this festival.

Through these films we go on different journeys, from geological speculations, digging and examining past realities though modern technology. Entering into domestic spaces and domestic work, peeking out at gardens with fallen apples. Exploring how we live, the politics of housing and living in care, how we care for each other and care for our parents. Moving through passages, flowing from narrated forests or cruising in parks and euphoric colours, or simply moving through the motions, one day at a time.

Doors open at 7pm and films start at 7.30pm. There will be an intermission half way through, with the event finishing at 9pm. The screenings are free to attend however there is a limited amount of seating so arriving early is recommended.

Come and join us for two cosy evenings of films, drinks, and of course, biscuits! ✨🍪


All films, online and in-person, will be closed captioned. Trigger warnings will be shown before each film and advised before the start of each screening as well. 

The in-person screenings will be seated events with mid level audio and films projected in a dark space. The overhead gallery lights will be switched on both before and after the screenings, and in the intermission. Our gallery space is located in a basement, with 12 concrete steps leading into the space. We have a stairlift installed for visitors who may require assistance to access the space, and committee members/ invigilators can assist visitors using the stairlift, should you need support. The space has 5 radiators and will be heated for the screenings.

There are a variety of seating options, including fold out chairs with backs, bean bags, a couch, and plinths. If you require a specific kind of seating, then email to request this and we will reserve a seat for you.
