Wednesday 18th June · 6:00pm – 9pm – Soup Kitchen

Screening Film is a project by Sam Meech (Re-Dock) in collaboration with Interconnect IT. Screening Film ver 1.1 has been made possible thanks to the support of the LJMU Enterprise team ‘DO IT award’.



The site aims to provide audiences with an overview of the diverse film-making and screening culture that exists in their area, and give profile and promotion to all forms of independent film-exhibition, from grass roots events to established cinemas. Screening Film is democratic platform for promoters, organisations and venues – networking independent film screening culture in the UK and making the ecology visible for all.

If you are an independent exhibitor, you can post your film events (simply register an account) and put your screening on the map. Exhibitors include established independent cinemas, film clubs and co-ops, alternative screening events, festivals, libraries, universities, artist spaces and more.

The Screening Film project has evolved from my interest in cinema ecology and models of film exhibition. Whereas in the past I have tried to create screening spaces through the Small Cinema project, with the Screening Film website I am attempting to provide a tool for mapping the film culture that already exists in communities across the UK.

Hello Chici

This is my first blog post, as part of the Child Computer Interaction at the Chici Lab in the University of central Lancaster. There aren’t many other artists at the ChiCI Lab, so thought I’d spend this first post explaining why I’m doing an Mres in this subject area and not in digital art.

My name is Becky, we may have met. I was introduced to Re-Dock through a two week internship during the Summer of 2011, organised through the University of Liverpool, where I am currently studying English.  My passions can be surmised as; comics, children’s literature and folk tales, cross stitching cartoon characters, writing bad poetry and baking cakes without wheat in them. I also nurture an obsession with zombies, taxidermy and an increasing interest in how/what/why people communicate with each other.

SYNTAX: Coding for Writers

At the end of June Mercy will deliver a new iteration of “Syntax: Coding for Writers” in the form of a two-day intensive skills-based workshop, which will be presented as part of FACT’s Open Curate It programme.  SYNTAX was originally devised in 2011 by John O’Shea and Nathan Jones as a framework for writers and coders to work together.  The SYNTAX experiment was the first time that our different collectives (Re-Dock and Mercy) had formally collaborated – it’s really great to see this initiative moving forward!

As swan journey ends, another begins

On March 18th, Grace completed an extraordinary feat, pedalling the 127 miles of the Leeds – Liverpool canal. It was a massive achievement for Grace, and of course for the BBC Radio Leeds team who seconded her on this crazy mission, and between them they raised over £50k for Sport Relief.

The project was remarkable in other ways too though… Read more…
