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.

A family expedition into the magic of early cinema

A precursor to the cinema, the “magic lantern” was amongst the most popular forms of entertainment in the nineteenth century, with lively, funny storytelling using silhouettes, mirrors, and coloured lights. At this very special workshop, suitable for all the family, you’ll have your chance to make your very own magic lantern slides and see them come to life. Hosted by Mirror Mirror, who will add further magic with live musical performance.
