With a fresh package available each season (August 2021 – March 2022), this is an opportunity to enrich the viewing experience of your audiences with no impact on your budget or workload. The Box Shorts is a joint venture between expanded cinema practitioners Compass Presents and The Box Plymouth. This activity is funded by the Film Audience Network (FAN).
Having worked extensively with archive film footage, both traditional exhibition, and more experimental presentations, Compass Presents are on a quest to increase access to archive film and give it a platform that enables audiences to connect with their moving image heritage. Handpicking clips from The Box archives, Compass will create themed, seasonal packages (approx 5 minutes in total) for you to screen before your feature films.
It is Compass Presents’ hope that a taster of these archive shorts will inspire audiences to seek out archive film in the future, and give them a deeper, more located experience of film viewing at the cinema.
