Films will be screened in more than 10 venues, including Brighton's Royal Pavilion.
The 10th edition of CINECITY The Brighton Film Festival takes place 15 November to 2 December 2012. CINECITY is presented in partnership with Screen Archive South East at the University of Brighton and the Duke of York’s Picturehouse, part of the City Screen cinema chain.
The festival gets underway with the highly anticipated SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS at the Duke of York's on 15 November, sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey. The closing night film on 2 December is the Cannes' Directors' Fortnight-winner NO, starring Gael Garcia Bernal.
Continuing CINECITY’s tradition of screenings in landmark locations, Brighton's Royal Pavilion becomes a cinema for one night only. The sumptuous surroundings of the Music Room provide a fitting backdrop for a screening of Stanley Kubrick’s Oscar-winning BARRY LYNDON on 18 November.
Celebrating the work of Brighton film-maker and artist Jeff Keen (1923-2012) CINECITY will also present screenings to complement the major exhibition SHOOT THE WRX: FILMMAKER & ARTIST JEFF KEEN at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
CINECITY are also creating a pop-up Cinema Bookshop at the University of Brighton Gallery. Presented in association with Wallflower Press, it will stock a range of new books on cinema, but will also feature a used book section to raise funds for The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund, the leading UK charity for people working behind the scenes in the film, cinema and television industries. The CTBF helps those who encounter accident, illness, bereavement or unemployment.
