Reface

Friday 22nd July 2022, 8 for 8:30pm. RSVP
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of the British Film Institute’s Film Feels: Curious season we have set Ukrainian developers Reface a grand challenge. Could they take a classic film and reface the extras with the faces of the audience watching, and in real time too? On this night, in extraordinary times, we find out.

Based in Edinburgh’s twin city of Kyiv, Reface will use an artificial intelligence to map facial data acquired at Inspace onto the original actor’s bodies. As for the film title, we’re keeping it suitably top secret. For extra deep fakery, the optional dress code is 1963 Paris. Et voilà, a world’s first.

Booking opens at 8pm on 1st July 2022.

Atmosphere

Atmosphere is our most popular research programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theaters from the 1920s and 30s.

Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.

Atmosphere OS

New Media Scotland was one of the very first four Creative Informatics challenge holders, securing £20,000 to support an innovative research and development proposal that collaboratively answered our challenge, Atmosphere OS.

Our challenge was to create an open-source toolkit for pop-up multi-sensory cinematic experiences that enables film exhibitors to work creatively with intersecting data sets provided by guests, a chosen venue and the movie itself.
