Come and experience the projects created in our Red Shoes Photogrammetry XR Lab, where artists and creatives from around the local and wider area have created new immersive work inspired by the pioneering visual world of Powell and Pressburger’s classic film. What would the objects, colours, and fantasies from their cinematic universe look like in a digital space? With projects to explore on different devices, take a step into the world of The Red Shoes, recontextualised for a Folkestone gallery space.

This Lab & Showcase is inspired by Powell & Pressburger’s The Red Shoes (1948), celebrating one of Britain’s most iconic and enduring creative partnerships in the history of filmmaking as part of the BFI’s Cinema Unbound: The Creative Worlds of Powell & Pressburger.

Join us on Thursday after the exhibition from 6pm to 8pm at the Brewery Tap for a festive evening of networking with the Screen South team & a host of digital & artistic creatives! Get free refreshments & the opportunity to chat, mingle, & maybe even discover new opportunities for collaboration.

Networking will run until 8pm – no need to sign up, just come along and get involved!
