This week sees documentary specialists 1000 Londoners launch their series of films charting lives at the margins in contemporary London. Each week will see a new set of films air across London venues, each week devote to a different theme and group of people. The film series spins out of 1000 Londoner's ongoing project to document a cross section of the inhabitants of London, see details below.
The first theme, starting from 2 November, is Night Crawlers. It features Londoners who do their living in the nocturnal hours and includes escorts, cabaret artists and clubbers, as well as Trevor who puts up Christmas lights and Save Soho's Tim Arnold.

1000 Londoners is a digital portrait of the city aiming to offer an insight into the lives of 1000 people who consider themselves to be Londoners, taking in all ages, religions, race, income, interests and opinions. Each week, a 3 minute profile of a Londoner is posted on the 1000 Londoners home page, and at the start of a new week at midnight GMT, the home page changes to show the profile of a brand new Londoner. All the profiles are archived into a searchable online gallery of Londoners.
Night Crawlers shines a light on the stories of Londoners who come out at night, from club kids to security guards.
