Inspired by This Collection, a project related with film, poetry and the city of Edinburgh, the event bases on This Collection Archive in order to have This Collection keep on growing and living under the vibrant city Edinburgh. Filmmakers adapt poems from This Collection Archive and translate words into visual language. The short films screen in loops within five hours. Therefore, viewers can join the screening anytime they wish to. Instead of having a conventional screening, the event constructs a space as video installation. A filmmaking workshop go with the screening is also aim to provide a chance to express yourself with your mobile phone camera or digital camera.
The event will be free admission. Based in the core idea of This Collection, we would also like to make it accessible for everyone and became a platform to connect art with people.
The event is going to take place on Saturday 23rd of June from 2 pm to 7 pm at Out of the Blue Drill Hall.
