PARALLEL - ICO Art + Cinema Weekend 2016

PARALLEL is a mini-festival of artists' moving image at one of the UK's best art spaces, the Arnolfini in Bristol.

Discover new and beautiful visions, learn how to push the limits of what's allowed in your cinema and how to expose your audience to new and important voices. 

Across the weekend you'll see exclusive previews, artist Q&As, brand new programmes of archive material and seminars with top industry figures. 

We'll be discovering the cinema of touch, taking a trip inside an eight-year-old's mind, watching the transformation of colonialism, seeing the evolution of selfie culture and discovering how film curation influences artists' practices.

See the full programme here.

If you're a cinema programmer new to artists' film, we're also hosting a training day ahead of the weekend to get you excited about the opportunity of showing extraordinary and unconventional artists' work.
