In Frame is an event season for film lovers. Hosted live at the iconic Curzon Mayfair, it will give the opportunity to get up close to some of the greatest filmmakers alive today.

Our debut event sees Wim Wenders ‘In Frame’. Novelist and broadcaster Francine Stock will take a deep dive into Wim’s career at the forefront of European cinema – from his ground-breaking road movie trilogy (Alice in the Cities, Wrong Move, and Kings of the Road) through to modern classics such as Paris, Texas and To The End of the World, and of course, his unforgettable masterpiece, Wings of Desire.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from one of the most important creative artists at work in the world today.
