London Popfest is super excited to announce this year’s film programme, a short directed by Hillfield’s bassist Grant Wilkinson featuring the music of The Clientele, followed by our main feature, an exclusive showing of the Jim Burn’s incredible feature length documentary about the BMX Bandits, with a Q&A with the director himself.


(2006, dir: Nikos Dayandas, Grant Wilkinson)
‘C’ is a twist through a dream world. From the city, through a fairground and a forest, to the sea, ‘C’ is an exploration of what it is like to look at the world through a viewfinder for the first time, old memories captured through a new way of seeing. The film was shot on colour and B and W Super 8, and has been scored by The Clientele.


Serious Drugs – A Film About BMX Bandits
(2011, dir. Jim Burns)
There is something special about BMX Bandits. Something special about their music and something special about being a member of the band. This film will help you understand what it means to be a BMX Bandit. When first-time filmmaker Jim Burns was deeply depressed he found hope in the playful, tender, and joyous music of melodic Scottish Indie-pop band BMX Bandits. Shot and produced over a period of four years, Burns’ debut documentary film frames an affectionate portrait of BMX Bandits founder Duglas Stewart and his musical mission to quietly save the world – and himself – one song at a time.
