Events and Talks

  • Drawing to Film presents ‘Spark of Being’ by Bill Morrison, Film Archaeologist

    Monday 10 August, 1-4pm

    Entry £3 plus booking fee.

    Jane Fordham’s special event encourages a way of looking at film that falls between acute observation and appreciation of a director’s visual language, and something akin to scavenging. Sitting in the dark watching and drawing can produce unexpected realisations about the film as well as bringing ones own aesthetic preoccupations to the surface.

    In response to the eerie beauty of the work Fragility by Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva, artist Jane Fordham will be projecting archival films on to the lace-like veils for a draw-to-film session. It will be a gentle and relaxing drawing session, wandering through the work sitting, watching, drawing then moving on for a wander.

    Refreshments will be provided free as well as basic drawing materials, but all donations towards keeping events like this at a low cost would be appreciated.

    You can book tickets for this event via Eventbrite  

    You may also buy tickets in person from the Fabrica office, which do not incur a booking fee cost. Cash only. 40 Duke St, Brighton, BN1 1AG / 01273 778646

  • Film Monthly – Viewer’s Choice: The Turin Horse (2011, 146mins, Subtitled, Rated 15)

    Wednesday 19 August, 6-9pm

    Entry £3 plus booking fee (60+ / unemployed / students: free entry – please be prepared to show proof of age/status on entry)

    You may also buy tickets with cash from the Fabrica office, which do not incur a booking fee cost.

    With over 70% of audience votes, The Turin Horse is our winner for the next Viewer’s Choice screening!

    A beautiful Hungarian philosophical drama from 2011, this evocative film records the days of a horse, it’s driver and his daughter. Seeking to reveal the ‘heaviness of human existence’ it is an uncompromisingly bleak and haunting film.

    Béla Tarr’s bleak and bitter film is a glacially paced nightmare in which the scare factor has been replaced with desperate melancholy; it is composed with his characteristic long takes, anvil silences and fiercely unsmiling faces, shot in undersea monochrome, and prefaced with Tarr’s habitual austere titles in Times Roman. The movie is about the end of time and the end of days. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

    After the screening the bar will re-open and attendees are welcome to stay for informal chat about the films.
    Free popcorn, a low-cost bar, blankets and beanbags make this a warm and welcoming event for all.

    You can buy tickets for this event via Eventbrite or you can call 01273 778646
