Retro look: 2012 Interview with Rob Wray, Shortwave Cinema

Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey is one of London’s few completely independent picture houses. It’s founder Rob Wray fought tooth and nail to keep it that way after 8 years of battling to make the cinema a reality. He started out in the 90s running Shortwave Films, projecting movies guerrilla-style in unusual locations around London, turning underground film screenings into all-night parties, long before Secret Cinema tapped into the online crowd and turned it into a commercial enterprise. We were proud to invite Rob to be a judge last year for The Van d’Or Awards and to confirm Shortwave Cinema as our first official venue for the winners’ screenings. Support the independents!
