Affective Cinema

Tuesday 21 - Thursday 23 August | 1pm - 5pm | The Box, FACT | FREE

Affective Cinema is an experimental presentation of 10 short films that investigates the beauty of images and unpredictability of reality. The video installation combines elements of cinematic style with alternative approaches to performance and cinematography.

The work stems from a practice-based research, which focuses on the potential of film to disclose an intimate view of the world, and create a sense of ‘affective meaning’ – a meaning that is felt before it can be thought. Affective Cinema does not aim to tell a story; instead, it reveals the world and the human body anew, through the infinite palette of cinema.

This project is presented by Pavel Prokopic, filmmaker and practice-based PhD student at the University of Salford.  The project has been funded by the AHRC through the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWCDTP) in partnership with FACT.

Affective Cinema will be shown in The Box at FACT between Tuesday 21 - Thursday 23 August, 1pm - 5pm each day.

If you would like to join us for the opening on Monday 20 August from 6pm, please register your attendance here.
