Pop-Up Paradise on Friday 4 October

An evening of short films for free on show at the Coastal Currents Pop-Up Cinema on the Hastings seafront.

When: 7.30pm Friday the 4th of October
Where: Coastal Currents Shipping Containers, Swan Boating Lake, Hastings Old Town.

Hastings based filmmakers Mark French and Toby Tatum are very proud to present an evening of fantastic short films at the Coastal Currents Pop-Up Cinema on the Hastings seafront.

While searching for films for a short film programme called Paradise Found (taking place at the Electric Palace Cinema on 1 December 2013) the curators found themselves inundated with fantastic films, which have come streaming in from all over the world. Unable to contain all these brilliant films in one event Mark and Toby have opted to expand their Paradise event and have been invited by Coastal Currents to screen a selection of them at this extra-special preview event.

The films featuring in Pop-Up Paradise all conjure visions of paradise, transporting us to a kaleidoscopic variety of lost edens. The show reflects on the ways these improbable paradises might be visited; through dreams, altered perceptions or drug-induced fantasies.

Pop-Up Paradise is an opportunity to see works by some of the world's most interesting film-makers, from underground mavericks to celebrated masters, including works by Margarida Sardinha, Devin Horan, Neil Beloufa and Stuart Pound among others.  

The screening is free to all, although seating is limited. Arrive early to avoid disappointment.  
Don't forget, the Electric Palace plays host to our very own show for Coastal Currents 2013 - come along to see Thom Kofoed's movie characters exhibition.


Tickets are available in advance online from this website, or on the door.
Doors and the bar open at 7.15pm, screenings start at 8pm.
