About ArtHouse Crouch End
The former Salvation Army Hall (Music Palace) in Crouch End, North London has been transformed into a dynamic new cultural venue that will tear down the perceived fourth wall between genres of Art that currently exist in isolation, confined to their own specific buildings.
By mixing the world of film, fine art, live music, discussion groups, theatre, live streaming, workshops, dance, comedy and whatever else that inspires, we strive to create a unique hub in North London for both Artists to feel at home in and lovers of art to be thoroughly entertained in.

In July 2023, we embarked on an incredible journey by organising our inaugural Short Film Festival, and the response from our audience exceeded our wildest expectations. As word spread about the festival’s success, it became clear that the demand for short films was soaring, and the anticipation for the second edition was already building.
Our Short Film Festival is a celebration of creativity, storytelling, and the power of cinematic expression. Within its carefully curated program, we showcased an eclectic array of films, each with its unique theme and message. From poignant biopics that delved deep into the lives of remarkable individuals to emotive dance performances that stirred the soul, and from uproarious comedies that brought laughter to the forefront to thought-provoking dramas that left the audience reflecting on life’s complexities – our festival covered a diverse spectrum of human experiences and emotions.
One of the highlights of the festival was the opportunity for our audience to engage directly with the filmmakers themselves. Following each screening, we hosted an engaging live Q&A session where the audience had the chance to interact with the creative minds behind these captivating short films. This dynamic exchange allowed for a deeper understanding of the artistic process, the inspiration behind the films, and the challenges faced during production. It was a chance for cinephiles and aspiring filmmakers alike to gain invaluable insights into the world of short filmmaking.
After the enlightening Q&A sessions, we transformed our venue into a vibrant space for mingling and networking. The festival’s bar area provided the perfect backdrop for filmmakers, enthusiasts, and artists to come together, share ideas, forge connections, and foster a sense of community. It was a space where collaborations were born, friendships were kindled, and the spirit of creative camaraderie thrived.
Our Short Film Festival was not just an event; it was a celebration of storytelling, an exploration of human emotions, and a platform for fostering connections within the filmmaking community. The overwhelming support from our audience only reaffirmed our belief in the enduring power of short films to inspire, entertain, and bring people together. As we look to the future, we are excited to continue this cinematic journey, committed to providing a stage for both established and emerging filmmakers to share their compelling stories with the world. The appetite for short films, it seems, knows no bounds, and we are more determined than ever to satisfy it.

“Thursday night was the premiere of The Projectionist at the Arthouse cinema in Crouch End. I helped out on this film as an Extra, Runner and a Producer. Majority of filming was done over a week in June in Lowestoft, then here we were 3 months later at the film’s premiere.
