WELCOME TO CINECITY 2017! 15th edition
10-26 November

Back for its 15th year, we’re thrilled to bring you two weeks of previews, exhibitions, live scores, Q&As, workshops and special events.

Taking the 70th anniversary of Brighton Rock as inspiration, this year we celebrate Brighton in all its glory. Enjoy a programme of events to celebrate the film that put Brighton on the movie map, including a 35mm screening of the Boultings’ acclaimed 1947 adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel Brighton Rock, the premiere of a live commission You Want Me To Say I Love You and a related exhibition.

Since its inception in 2003 CINECITY have worked with musicians and partners to present, commission, and create live cinema events. This year we present two brand-new scores for classics The Lodger, scored live by Covent Garden Sinfonia, and Metropolis, with a new score by Factory Floor commissioned by London Science Museum.

Exhibitions this year include work by both local and international artists, with moving image presented in the gallery and cinema space. Explore FAKE NEWS: The British Cinema Newspapers, an exhibition that re-creates significant newspaper front pages from Brighton Rock and a host of British thrillers, then watch as Christian Marclay scours vinyl in his film Looking for Love.

We also welcome two new venues from the Brighton environs to join us with this year’s festival. The shiny new Depot cinema in Lewes alongside Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne will host a range of screenings and exhibitions.

All that’s really just a tiny taste of all the fantastic events coming this November. So, do take a look at the the full line-up and book via the links in the A-Z and calendar listings.
