Light After Dark Film Festival 2024

Immersive encounters in cinema

A film festival dedicated to immersive experiences in cinema. Pairing films with performance, music, technology, and art. Light After Dark will give audiences a deep, intimate, and collective encounter with film.

A meander into your cinematic unconscious

Cinema has the unique ability to put dreams on screen, from the surreal and absurd to the fantastic and the horrific. Equally, cinema can infiltrate our subconscious, with celluloid spectacle looping in our nocturnal adventures. Where does the screen end and dream begin? To find out, join us for this cinematic sleepwalk, where you can enjoy some dreamy live music in the café, delve into some iconic clips and performances, and share secrets and fantasies.

With a Live performance from Purple Hat Mob - a four-piece experimental band based in Nottingham, and DJ set from rare French vinyl DJ duo, Disques Vérité.

£10 / £8 Concessions


This event will take place in The Space at Nottingham Contemporary

What to Expect

An installation of film clips, with which you will be invited to interact, and music in the cafe. Audience members can direct their own evening, meandering where they wish.
