FILMBEE started out of a night of Expanded cinema back in 2001, featuring a double widescreen sandwich screening with live soundtrack, cine-film installations and a performance of the Exorcist on super8 beamed onto a slide projection of the Side Cinema auditorium.

Film Programming is something we are very dedicated to, and our programmes have been shown around the UK and internationally. Members of FILMBEE programmed the Side Cinema between 2001-5, and the Star and Shadow CInema from 2006 onwards.

The most recent film programming project is Losing the Plot, a rural film retreat in the north pennines, screening super-specialised films with talks, walks, eating together and enjoying the context of the wild outdoors.
