PORTAVILION 2011: The Floating Cinema, 1st July – 17th September

Date uploaded: June 29, 2011


The Floating Cinema invites you on board as it navigates the waterways of the Host Boroughs this summer.

Created by Hackney-based team of architects Studio Weave and artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie), this extraordinary customised narrow boat hosts a varied and vibrant programme of free on-board screenings, quirky canal tours, talks and workshops. The Floating Cinema will also present larger scale outdoor film events for canal side audiences and informal drop-in Open Thursdays where you can meet the crew, relax and watch rare films selected especially for the Floating Cinema by artists Somewhere.

The Floating Cinema is the latest addition to UP Project’s Portavilion programme of temporary pavilion commissions, this time for the waterways of east London. It is commissioned by The Olympic Delivery Authority as part of their Arts and Cultural Strategy, funded by Arts Council England and will form part of the CREATE11 summer festival.
