Open City Documentary Festival, Special Events, Edge

Edge: where an area that is known or privileged meets another that is unknown or ignored.

Together with Urban Lab Films and The Bartlett’s Film+Place+Architecture PhD network, we present a three-part screening series that will compliment the EDGE symposium organised by UCL and the 2017 Folkestone Triennial.

The Edge project is a narrative driven exploration of contemporary situated practice in 'edge' urban settings, focusing on in-between spaces and the creative ways to which these can be used. Guest speakers will bring their own perspectives from the worlds of art, architecture, and anthropology to compliment the curated film programmes.

The screenings will be held at three locations each of which are situated on the High Speed 1 rail link (HS1) route between London and Folkestone. Each event will explore one of the symposiums’ three key themes - Gateway, Periphery and Border.

Join us at the launch of this exciting new film series as part of Open City Documentary Festival.

In collaboration with UCL urban labs, Film + Place + Architecture and the Bartlett School of Architecture.
