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.

The annual CodeJam at McGill is a 48 hour programming competition, run by the Electrical Computer and Software Engineering Student Society (ECSESS) with the goal of developing software solutions to a pre-defined real life problem centered around an all encompassing theme. We hope to build awareness and encourage innovation and creativity in software development.

No one is here to talk about time. The research-creation event Time Forms: The Temporalities of Aesthetic Experience 2013 is dedicated to the aesthetic experience of time.
