New Work Scotland Programme
18 May - 26 May
Inspired by the Technicolor utopias of children's television, Over The Rainbow invites the viewer into a shape-shifting world inhabited by cuddly monsters, faceless clones and gruesome pop divas. Shot entirely using green-screen the film presents a synthetic environment, part toy model, part computer generated landscape, which explores a dark, comedic parody of the fairytale, video game and horror movie genres.
Read the interpretation material which accompanies the exhibition, including a short text by Critical Discourse Intern, James Bell.

Free Screening Programme
The Summer School will be complemented by an evening screening programme of work by or selected by contributing artists, which will be free and open to the public. For more information and to book click here.
The Summer School is organised to coincide with The 13th RAI International Festival of Ethnographic Film which takes place in Edinburgh from the 13th - 16th June (NB Summer School participants will be able to get a RAI Film Festival pass at the member rate of £60).

However it also provides the opportunity for individuals to explore decisions about their future, for example in deciding to pursue their own practice. We promise lots of support and opportunities to develop skills and confidence - a rewarding and enjoyable experience working as part of a knowledgeable and dynamic team!
