A White Night pedal-cinema at Fortune of War

On Saturday night we were invited down to Brighton to join in the White Night festivities by the nice chaps at the Fortune of War pub on Brighton beach front.

White Night is Brighton & Hove’s unique all night cultural festival which takes place every year on the last Saturday in October when the clocks go back. To mark the end of British Summer time and make the most of the extra hour of darkness the organisers work with the city’s artists, venues, creators and curators to create an incredible evening of entertainment for local people and visitors. We heard it attracts an extra 20,000 visitors and it certainly was buzzing this weekend. Every nook and dark corner of town was filled with something unusual and wonderful with light shows, film projections, dance performances, an old fashioned village fete and even a game of urban golf.

We took our field cinema set up with a couple of bikes and played a selection of short films to passers by. The pub staff kept punters (and us) fueled with mulled wine and Brighton's famous Tuaca and we weren't short of cyclists offering to keep the power supply coming. Loads of people came down and even passers by couldn't help but stop to watch what was going on. Thanks to Laura Little for helping edit film footage for us for the event and Tim Dalinian Jones for letting us borrow the projector!
