Live Cinema Summit 2018

Live Cinema UK is the UK’s only organisation focused on bringing artists, exhibitors, distributors and producers closer together to create experiential cinema events.

Based in West Yorkshire, Live Cinema UK curates innovative programmes and new art works inspired by the moving image, advising and partnering with cultural promoters regionally (Leeds International Film Festival, Screen Yorkshire, Sheffield Doc/Fest), nationally (BFI Film Audience Network, National Media Museum, This Way Up Conference) and now internationally (Motovun, Reykjavik and Wroclaw New Horizon Film Festivals, Alamo Drafthouse (USA)).  Find out more about their work here.

Building on the success of the Live Cinema Conference 2016 held at King’s College London in May 2016, the inaugural two day Live Cinema Summit 2018 at Sheffield Doc/Fest brought together practitioners, musicians and artists to discuss the future of experiential and augmented cinema. The two day programme took place over 8th and 9th June, and saw over 1400 admissions to panels, workshops, networking and world premiere live events.
