Notable events and things of interest
The Cube Cinema, Bristol, England has been playing with film, culture and form for fifteen years. Volunteer-run, it is organised and curated by the artists/workers.
The Film That Buys the Cinema (FTBTC) is a 70 minute art feature film comprised of one-minute takes, no edits. Each minute is shot by contributors who have passed through the Cube and who are special to us: film makers, musicians, poets, amateurs, wrestlers, radicals, community groups and more.
Each contributor’s take is 60 seconds long. Each minute will be sequenced together to morph into a labyrinthine journey of light and sound, capturing not only the here and now but the history and future of our very special and deeply loved independent social cinema space.
From the wilfully obscure to the cult, the pop spectrum to the outer limits, from scientists to skaters The Film That Buys the Cinema will be a series of takes on life’s rich pageant, bumper to bumper. An artistic time capsule.
Through associated art objects, credits and then exhibition, this film will help raise the final funds needed to buy the actual building the Cube is housed in and secure the plucky Microplex’s future
