The Floating Cinema 2013: Extra-Ordinary
Building on the resounding success of the Floating Cinema 2011, UP Projects launched a brand new Floating Cinema at the end of July 2013. Designed by Duggan Morris Architects and working in partnership with artists and filmmakers Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie (aka Somewhere), the cinema features a new “Extra-Ordinary” programme of outdoor screenings, canal tours, workshops and events along the waterways of East London and beyond.
“We wanted this year's programme to say that it's London's ordinary people that make its culture so extraordinary, and to spotlight some of those people and what they do in life, as well as to make sure they are at the heart of the programme as an active audience. The Extra-Ordinary theme offers a celebration of the overlooked and 'ordinary' in life, and brings to the fore the brilliance to be found on our doorstep." Somewhere 2013
The Floating Cinema is supported by The Legacy List with corporate partner Bloomberg as part of Bloomberg East in partnership with the Canal & River Trust. The Floating Cinema is part of UP Projects' Portavilion programme of temporary pavilions and structures for London's public spaces.
