On the evening of 27th September, Lighthouse will host two film screening events as part of Brighton Digital Festival 2012.

LowDef Film and Video Night
LowDef Film and Video Night

This double-bill screening event will begin with Film Show and Tell a showcase of digital shorts by local talent. Back at school, Show and Tells were an opportunity for us to show things that we were proud of and talk about them with our peers. In keeping with this tradition, Brighton filmmakers will be screening their films and talking about the process of making them with the audience who will be encouraged to ask questions and give feedback. The three films we are screening have been chosen not only because they are great but they are all interesting case studies and should be a great topic of discussion. The films we will be screening include:

Man In Fear

This event has been organised by Rebecca Watkin with the support of Wired Sussex

The second event of the evening will be LowDef Film and Video Screening showing one minute films made on any “low definition” format from mobile phones to super 8.
