Everything is Cinema: Immersion and Creating Community

  • BRIC House 647 Fulton Street Brooklyn, NY (map)

A New York Film and Video Council Summit

This summit will look at exciting new (and newly rediscovered) developments in immersive and site specific film and video programming, including Shadow Casting - a group of people performing a movie in front of a screen while that movie is playing, Cosplay - dressing up as a character from a movie, book or video game, and all manner of location and theme based, often participatory, film exhibition experiences.  

We will explore how these experiential programs are transforming how people experience film and video, and how film and video are being used to build community. The program includes video presentations followed by audience Q&A with representatives of immersive programming organizations BBQ Films, Videology Bar and Cinema, and the Shadow Casting grandaddy of them all - the official NYC Rocky Horror Picture Show cast.
