Our next Club Cinema guest, David Bruckner, directed “The Night House.”
By Virginia Yapp
It’s here — your chance to get up close and personal with some of the visionary storytellers behind your favorite Sundance Film Festival releases!
Earlier this month, we launched the first edition of Club Cinema, our Clubhouse conversation series with our friends at TheFutureParty, a daily newsletter that brings you the most meaningful business and culture news. Join us every week (usually at 10 a.m. PT on Thursdays!) to hear a live chat with a special guest, delving into everything from their artistic influences to their latest works — and maybe even a question or two about their carnivorous plants.
We kicked things off on June 3 with writer-director Prano Bailey-Pond and screenwriter Anthony Fletcher, the duo behind the 2021 Sundance Film Festival opening-night selection Censor. And on June 17, we talked to writer-director Heidi Ewing and the cast behind I Carry You With Me, Ewing’s debut narrative feature that was recently released in U.S. theaters.
Keep an eye on this space to see who will be swinging by for our next episode. Including…
OUR NEXT GUEST:

Set for release in U.S. theaters on August 20, the film stars Rebecca Hall, Sarah Goldberg, Evan Jonigkeit, Stacy Martin, and Vondie Curtis-Hall.
About the Film: A widow begins to uncover her recently deceased husband’s disturbing secrets.
