About

Immersive encounters in cinema

A film festival dedicated to immersive experiences in cinema. Pairing films with performance, music, technology, and art. Light After Dark will give audiences a deep, intimate, and collective encounter with film.

Imagined scenes from an unmade film

Have you ever imagined a film that doesn’t exist? At this event we’ll do just that. The Blind Man was a script by Alfred Hitchcock and Ernest Lehman, about a blind jazz pianist who regains his sight after surgically receiving the eyes of a dead man. With the new eyes, the pianist begins to see visions of the late donor’s murder—and the image of the murderer remains imprinted on the retina of his new eyes. Crucially, Hitchcock never made this film, it remains as a tantalizing, unrealised project. At this event, a group of actors will perform a live table read of The Blind Man, mixed media. This is a unique opportunity not to watch a film, but to experience an unmade film, where potential fuses with your imagination.
