Jaws – and animation workshop the Marquee in the ICE Field, Isfield


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


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

We continue the popular series of film screenings with Frank Capra’s delightful It Happened One Night. Starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert this screwball romantic comedy was the first film to win ‘the big five’ Academy Awards (best picture, director, actor, actress and screenplay).

A spoilt socialite, Ellie Andrews (Colbert) has married an opportunistic aviator against the wishes of her father, who keeps her prisoner on a yacht. Ellie escapes, swimming to shore, and plans to reunite with her husband. She manages to get onto a Greyhound bus destined for New York, where she meets Peter Warne (Gable), a newspaper reporter who was recently fired for drinking on the job. He strikes a deal with Ellie, agreeing to help reunite her with her husband, provided she gives him an exclusive story. As they travel towards New York, they get involved in a series of misadventures, and they begin to fall for each other.

This film set the pace for the ‘screwball’ comedy – and was one of the first ‘odd couple’ films, featuring the eventual romance between two people with very different personalities from different social stations. The film is as breezy, light and fun as it was on initial release, and represents a director and two actors all at their peaks!

Tickets £5 in advance (£6 on the door, subject to availability). Advance booking recommended, by emailing info@lja.uk.com or telephoning 01273 328683.
