Free Cinema was a documentary film movement that emerged in England in the mid-1950s. The term referred to an absence of propagandised intent or deliberate box office appeal. Co-founded by Lindsay Anderson, though he later disdained the 'movement' tag, with Karel Reisz, Tony Richardson and Lorenza Mazzetti. The movement began with a programme of three short films at the National Film Theatre, London on 5 February 1956. The programme was such a success that five more programmes appeared under the Free Cinema banner before the founders decided to end the series. The last event was held in March 1959. Three of the screenings consisted of work from overseas film makers. (WIKIPEDIA)


These films were not made together; nor with the idea of showing them together. But when they came together, we felt they had an attitude in common. Implicit in this attitude is a belief in freedom, in the importance of people and in the significance of the everyday.


As film-makers we believe that

No film can be too personal.

The image speaks. Sound amplifies and comments.
Size is irrelevant. Perfection is not an aim.

An attitude means a style. A style means an attitude.


Lorenza Mazzetti
Lindsay Anderson
Karel Reisz
Tony Richardson


(Manifest of the first program of the Free Cinema. February, 1956)

I wonder if Lindsay Anderson's The White Bus should be included- it's like a link between gritty kitchen sink dramas (and the likes of Shelagh Delaney's Salford) and If (and later O Lucky Man). Ha, silly me, it's here, with a different title!

The White Bus / Red, White and Zero lasts a little more than a short, I saw recently and, frankly, I liked very much :)
