What We Do
Lighthouse creates vibrant, inspirational programmes that show how important artists and filmmakers are in a changing media landscape.
We work with digital art and moving image, which we present in our own venue in Brighton and beyond, nationally and internationally. By supporting artists and filmmakers, through commissioning, exhibition and professional development, we demonstrate that digital culture is about more than technology and tools; it is about ideas, emotion, learning, and aesthetics.
Lighthouse manages the high-level production scheme, BFI Shorts, in collaboration with the British Film Institute, which has produced 17 major short films over the past two years.
Lighthouse also runs the UK’s leading mentoring programme for filmmakers – Guiding Lights – which supports rising film talent by connecting them with some of the industry’s greatest names, including Sam Mendes, Alex Garland, Kenneth Branagh and Barbara Broccoli.
Lighthouse is a vibrant venue for events in central Brighton. As well as hosting our own events, we provide spaces for commercial hire.
