Introducing VITRINE part of White Night Festival

Film Co Lab will be screening up to 15 films in Brighton’s shop windows on the 29th of October as part of White Night Festival.

Illuminating shop windows with short films, Film Co Lab will harness the surrounding sounds of the festival to create a unique soundtrack for each film. Bringing cinema out of the dark and into the street, the boundary between art and life is challenged and the audience transformed from spectators to participants.

The idea of the exhibition is to break away from the division between life and art, which is usually enclosed in a gallery space, and life and film typically shown in a dark, closed space. The moving images encourage a process of reflection about the context and framing of art/film as well as the daily use of the streets and shop windows, allowing for different readings of space and film to emerge. The films span both upcoming artists and established figures of the art world, helping young artists to promote their work whilst simultaneously developing a dialogue with better known films providing fresh new meanings to all works involved.
