OtherWorlds, the music and sound art festival that has been held in Blackpool for the last two years, has branched out into cinema, and will be taking place from Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 October.
The four day event will be held at three different Blackpool locations, (Bootleg Social, West Coast Rock Café, and Abingdon Studios) and no entry will be charged for any of the activities.
The first night will kick things off with some local artists (and OtherWorlds veterans) playing along to live soundtracks, plus a screening of Invisible Britain, the Sleaford Mods documentary. Other documentaries being screened feature legendary performers James Booker, Lee Scratch Perry and Billy Fury.
Looped pieces will be available throughout Saturday and Sunday at Abingdon Studios, Saturday will feature a selection of Middle Eastern music videos, curated by Tse Tse Fly, and Sunday will be an offering from Bad Suburban Nightmare.
Over 500 entries were received for the short music film competition, some of the results will be shown on the final night at Bootleg Social alongside the announcement of the winner.
The festival has been funded by LeftCoast and has been supported by UNIT Projects. Rick and Carl of Field Collective are thrilled to be able to bring more art and culture to the town and feature local talent to boot, one of whom is triple-threat Lindsay Bennett, whose directorial/writing debut will be premiered during the event.
Lions & Tigers & Bears has already been nominated for 2 cinema awards, and promises to be a huge coup for OtherWorlds Festival.
