The first series of ‘SOCIAL CINEMA’ is set to launch on the 24th February 2016 with a world class programme of online cinema screenings. This is the first event in the South East Cultural Centre’s new outreach programme - ‘FORTNIGHTS’. The purpose of the ‘FORTNIGHTS’ programme is to make leading cultural events accessible to those who may not be in a position to access or attend live events held in the cultural capitals, arts centres, theatres or cinemas.
From February to May 2016, series 1 of “SOCIAL CINEMA” will be screening films from Oscar nominated director Hanna Polak, internationally renowned artists Brian Maguire and Ai Weiwei, as well as films highlighting the current Syrian refugee crises and some home-grown sensations such as The Pipe.
Once a fortnight on a Wednesday at 7pm, people around the country are invited to log into the interactive viewing room, located on the South East Cultural Centre’s website. There they can view the film and participate in discussion as everyone experiences the film screenings together.
