Cinemas Out of the Box (SP0119)

Status: Ongoing October 2013 - Present

Cinema Out of the Box is a project to develop practical tools for a mobile cinema.

Today, our media is defined by mobility, and for some, this means that a “cinematic specificity” has been lost.

On the contrary, the new mobility of cinema (portable devices, such as our laptop screens) means that we can have “cinematic experiences” in new and unexpected ways. Many filmmakers and performers are experimenting with this.
