Summer Cinema

A worldwide film gathering, think outside the box…

  Preview night: 31st July    

  Main screenings: 1st August

Surface Gallery invites you to a worldwide film gathering for the premiere of Summer Cinema. This exhibition will feature work from across a range of creative practices and media, celebrating the talent and diversity of contemporary films, art videos and animation. Surface Gallery will bring together cinema enthusiasts, filmmakers and artists to discover the best of world shorts.

We are proud to present more than 30 short films, art videos and animation to play in our programme. Highlights include awarded films "Aubade" from Mauro Carrero and "A film by Abigail" from Paul Vernon, plus plenty more – a full listing will be available a couple of days before our preview night.

Our project space will turn into a cinema for this occasion. Cosy up on a cushion, enjoy the popcorn and let us tell you wonderful stories. We will be showing some of the best selected work on Friday for a sneak preview screening. Then on Saturday we offer you a choice of three different screenings at 1pm, 3pm and 5.30pm.

Summer Cinema will launch Friday 31st July, 6pm, together with Painted Surface, an exhibition exploring contemporary painting. To accompany the evening performance by artist Kimvi Nguyen, there will be local ales provided by Surface Gallery’s brewery sponsor, Springhead.

Snap up a spot at our Surface photo booth for an unusual souvenir!
