Travelling Picture Show

Summer 2009
Venues including Lichfield, Ledbury, Hereford, Wolverhampton and Stafford.

Inspired by the classic Saturday matinee experience, the Travelling Picture Show visited arts centres and community venues all over the West Midlands with a lorryload of shorts, animation and features from across the world. Many of the shows also included giveaways, activities and a chance to contribute to a special ‘chain-film’ called The Magic Box, with young filmmakers making a little bit of the animation at each stop along the way.
