The Inaugural Live Cinema Conference 2016

May 27, 2016

Leading lights of immersive cinematic entertainment form stellar roster for world’s first specialist conference in London this May.

The Live Cinema Conference brings together leading artists, practitioners, producers, commissioners, exhibitors and academics to explore the burgeoning category of Live Cinema. Experts at the forefront of the trend toward boundary breaking augmented cinema experiences will lead a day of workshops designed to foster new collaborations, empower those wishing to move into the market and give an overview of the enormous breadth of creativity at work within Live Cinema. This will be followed by a groundbreaking one-off triple collaboration evening event, which combines underground favourite Edible Cinema with the blockbuster NT Live programme and live action from theatre company Omnibus.

The Conference defines Live Cinema as any screening augmented by synchronous live performance, site-specific locations, technological intervention, social media engagement and all manner of simultaneous interactive moments including singing, dancing, eating, drinking and smelling.

Speakers at the conference will be drawn from across the Industry, allowing unprecedented access to stakeholders from every stage of the development and delivery of a Live Cinema event.

As part of the programme, delegates will be able to attend one of the following specialist sessions:

  • Funding ideas lab: Current & forthcoming funding opportunities.
