Dazed x MUBI Cinema Club is back with a screening of CLOSE

Featuring a Q&A with director Lukas Dhont – here’s how you can attend

In the era of streaming giants and their seemingly infinite amount of content, MUBI is doing things differently. With its carefully curated selection of arthouse classics, film festival favourites and new releases, the streaming platform is leading the pack in bringing the most innovative forms of storytelling to a wider audience.

Now, the Dazed x MUBI Cinema Club returns for a new season to bring you an exclusive screening of Lukas Dhont’s CLOSE. It’s a coming-of-age film exploring the flourishing friendship between two 13-year-old boys as they navigate questions from classmates on the nature of their relationship. Featuring standout performances from its two young stars Eden Dambrine and Gustav De Waele, the film is a character study of the complex emotions in adolescent bonds.

The screening will take place on Wednesday 8 February at the Rio Cinema in Hackney, and will be followed by a Q&A with director Lukas Dhont that you’ll not want to miss. Plus, all guests will be offered a free drink upon their arrival.

Elsewhere, CLOSE has been nominated for International Feature Film at this year’s Oscars ceremony, having already achieved acclaim on the festival circuit, winning the 2022 Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix award. But Dhont is no stranger to critical acclaim: his 2018 film Girl also won the Camera d’Or at Cannes, the award for best debut feature film.

CLOSE will be released in UK and Irish cinemas March 3.
