Exploring the Future Cinematic

An afternoon of discussion and screenings on the future cinematic with curators and artists discussing new trends and emerging practices. Will feature Dr Frank Gray (Screen Archive South East) on the history of immersiveness; Tim Brown (Cinecity) on CINECITY’s work with expanded cinema in galleries and cinemas and Helen Kennedy (School of Media, University of Brighton) on live cinema – the term now used to capture the diverse range of productions and experiences that are changing film exhibition.


This event is taking place as part of The Future Cinematic, a series of events presented by CINECITY, Towner Art Gallery and the University of Brighton.

We are now experiencing a cinema revolution that is being shaped by new technology, new cinematic work by artists, the emergence of the gallery as a cinematic space and new kinds of audience engagement. What is emerging are new ways to make, share and experience films through immersive, interactive and shared experiences.
