Connecting Cinemas


The Lectorate of Play & Civic Media is part of the international consortium, composed by cinemas, creative hubs, and research groups, for a new project: CONNECTING CINEMAS.

With the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, this project aims at investigating the cinema-making process on three unfolding key visions – Connect, Entertain and Engage – in order to generate an impact on the cinema as an innovation hub and community center. In this context, Play & Civic Media will contribute to the research and development of interactive site-specific media experiences that promote audience engagement in public spaces such as cinemas.

Play & Civic Media will also contribute to the expansion of CONNECTING CINEMAS network via collaborations with the Media Architecture Biennale 2020 , which will take place during Spring 2021 in Amsterdam and Utrecht.
