Moonrise Kingdom in Isfield

FilmSpotLogoChosenCol4Brite

Saturday 22 August, doors 6.45pm for 7.30pm film screening

Isfield Village Hall

Wes Anderson had been away from live-action film making for half a decade before the release of Moonrise Kingdom in 2012. And while he earned an Oscar nomination and no shortage of acclaim for his stop motion adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox, Moonrise Kingdom proved to be something even more special. And well worth the wait. A mix of romance, comedy and drama, Moonrise Kingdom is set in 1965 and centres on a pair of twelve-year-olds who decide to run away together. Cue the inevitable search party, featuring the likes of Bill Murray, Bruce Willis and Frances McDormand, and the scene is set for one of Anderson’s trademark off-the-wall pieces of cinema. Quirky, funny and with a real identity that sets it apart, Moonrise Kingdom is an excellent film, and one that lingers around your brain long after the credits have rolled.

Tickets £6 on the door, wine and nibbles provided by Isfield Village Hall.

Saturday 5 September
‘Make a Fish’ workshop: 11am
Large scale animation workshop: 1-2pm

Short animation and local film screening of Sara Proudfoot’s ‘The Duke': 8pm
Jaws screening: 8.50pm

Building on our successful marquee screening last year, we are returning to the marquee in the ICE Field for another classic film this September. As well as screening ‘Jaws’, we are looking forward to running two workshops throughout the day.

At the ‘Make a Fish’ workshop, we shall be working with participants to decorate 2d fish puppets of all shapes and sizes. Why not drop in between 11am-12noon to choose and decorate your own fish, which you can then bring to life during our animation workshop, taking place between 1-2pm? Each fish template costs £1. Once we have filmed the animation in the afternoon, the Filmspot team will set to work polishing off the short animated film, to be screened at 8pm in the Marquee!

Shortly after 8pm, we are also screening ‘The Duke’ – a charming short film produced by local resident, Sara Proudfoot Clinch.

At 8.50pm, the screening of ‘Jaws’ will commence. Stephen Spielberg’s classic thriller is 40 years old this year, but it hasn’t lost any of its bite!

 

Cabinet of Dr Caligari with LIVE score from Partial Facsimile

FilmSpotLogoChosenCol4Red

Thursday 10 September, doors 7.30pm, film 8.00pm

Fabrica, Brighton

Filmspot are are delighted to be involved in bringing a screening of the German Expressionist masterpiece, Das Cabinet Des Dr Caligari to Fabrica Brighton this September as part of Scalarama Festival. Artists’ collective, Partial Facsimile are providing a haunting semi-improvised live soundtrack in 5.1 surround sound.

Arguably the most visually influential movie of the silent period. Every stark expressionist frame now seems archetypal, as carnival hypnotist Caligari unleashes the somnambulist Cesare to do his wicked bidding. Horror cinema was built upon such milestones, but this gothic masterpiece has seeped into the very soul of movie-making itself, continuing to cast its unbreakable spell – thrilling, chilling, electrifying. – Mark Kermode, The Observer
