Philomela’s Chorus: Screening & Panel Conversation

Dates: Wednesday 23 May, 2018 – 14:00

Hosted by the British Council as part of the 27th European Film Festival.

Philomela’s Chorus brings together the work of four emerging artists from literature, visual arts, and the moving image. It offers an opportunity to see a new and exciting range of styles and approaches – from the polyphonic to the deeply personal. Philomela’s Chorus is not just an exercise in image making; it is a unique and challenging programme, which attempts to create a shared visual vocabulary.
