Films from Screen Archive South East and Driftwood 360.
For over a century film-makers have been inspired to make films in Brighton – and each time the city has been revealed in a new and different light. By using a range of technologies, shooting at different times and in special places, working in black & white and colour, fascinated by the connections between people and places, this collection explores Brighton in the past and in the present.
The looped compilation is drawn from the collection of Screen Archive South East (part of the University of Brighton) and features an extract from the new Brighton film, Brighton: Symphony of a City (2016), by film-maker Lizzie Thyne and composer Ed Hughes.
Driftwood 360 uses VR technology to open up new opportunities for immersive cultural experiences. From magic lanterns to the bioscope and the Duke of York’s to outdoor screenings and installations, Brighton has experimented as much with how and where you watch moving image as to the stoies on the screen. VR and Film360 is no exception so dive into these specially selected 360 films that celebrate the state of the art of film-in-the-round. These new panoramas of Brighton have been created by Driftwood especially for CINECITY. Music by Kevin Matthews.
