A quick-fire half hour screening of short films about magical, mucky, messed up nature. From sex rituals to slime mould, we take you to the place where nature breaks down and transforms into your weirdest nightmare.

The Film Jam was an epic evening in which London’s thirteen finest film clubs present their best selections of weird and wonderful cinematic treats in quick succession, alongside music and fun. It launched the fabulous Scalarama Season, which is fast becoming one of the UK’s most reliably excellent film initiatives.
