Tyneside Cinema’s Arts Programme is expanding, with the opening of a brand new exhibition and screening space in September 2014.
Located on the Cinema’s third floor, The Gallery will be a unique, state-of-the-art space, celebrating the incredibly exciting creative crossover between artists and filmmakers working with moving image. In the daytime it will show and commission a rich and exciting programme of moving image work by artists, and in the evening it will turn into an intimate 33-seat cinema, where you can enjoy fantastic feature films, new and historical artists’ films, special events and much more.
The daytime programme will change regularly – and it’s completely free.
The Gallery opens with this beautiful and moving video installation, which is the first return to art-making by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard since their award-winning feature film 20,000 Days on Earth.
EDIT is a unique collaboration between artist-filmmakers Forsyth & Pollard, musician Joe McAlinden, writer Martin McCardie and arts producer Katie Nicoll, based on a powerful piece of music by McAlinden (founder member of Scottish band Superstar). Inspired by the sound of the ebbing tide, McAlinden mixed stunning vocal harmonies with the haunting sounds of one of the UK’s last working water-powered church organs to complete the rich musical score. Forsyth & Pollard’s visual response is an emotional, arresting journey through loss and redemption, scripted by McCardie and starring Kate Bracken.
Tyneside Cinema is thrilled to present EDIT for the first time in England and the first exhibition of the work in a gallery setting, following its premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in June 2014.
