Less Enfants du Paradis, more Lotte Reiniger!

STOP PRESS!

Unfortunately due to unforeseen licensing issues, we are unable to screen ‘Les Enfants du Paradis‘ at the CMP Festival at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, this Sunday 15 July.

The good news is… we have an even more magical event to take its place!

Filmspot will revisit the fairy tales of animation pioneer Lotte Reiniger with a stunning programme of four short films: Snow White and Rose Red, The Magic Horse, Thumbelina and Sleeping Beauty. All the films were created in 1954, and feature charming music and narration, as well as Reiniger’s exquisitely detailed silhouette puppets.

We are delighted that Jake Spicer and DRAW will be providing three 20 minute theatrically costumed drawing sessions throughout the evening. Drawing is optional, but I think most people will find it hard to resist picking up a pencil in the atmospheric setting of St Nicholas Church.

Just to get you all warmed up, here’s a clip of Jake at TEDx in Brighton, talking about his passion for life drawing:

For further information about DRAW, see their website: http://www.draw-brighton.co.uk/

There will also be delicious galettes and crepes from The French Revolution, as well as a bar.

Doors to the event open at 6pm, with the first short film starting at 6.30pm (we expect the event to finish by approximately 8.30pm).

Tickets may be booked from www.brightonticketshop.com, by telephoning 01273 709709 or be purchased on the door – although we are expecting this to be a really popular event, so we’d recommend advance booking.

This promise to be a fun evening for all ages – we hope to see you all there!
