Thank you Mr Hitchcock – promoting the Chiswick film club

Andrea Carnevali’s homage to the films he shows at his Chiswick Film Club

Bafta winning film editor (and Chiswick resident) Andrea Carnevali holds a regular Film Club at Chiswick Cinema, showing films that take his fancy, screening them with a little introduction at the start and a discussion which he opens up to the audience afterwards.

He does it with humour, terrific enthusiasm and a lot of arm waving, bringing a great deal of knowledge to the discussions, though he is always keen to hear what other people think about the films he’s chosen, particularly if they have not seen them before.

He has been doing this since January 2023. As is the way of these things, he creates promotional material to advertise the film club. At first you might not notice, particularly if you don’t know who is starring in the film. Then gradually you realise there is something familiar about all these trailers!

Jurassic Park

Raging Bull

Badlands

Stand By Me

The Age of Innocence

The Truman Show

The Fabelmans

The Long Goodbye

Hi next film club, Rear Window on Tuesday 14 May, celebrates the master of thrillers, Alfred Hitchcock, from whom he has pinched the idea of inserting himself into the action.

This time, he’s taken it even further.

If you like films but don’t like pretentious arty discussions, come to Andrea’s film club. They’re fun.
