Ancient folklore around the world infer that everything has a spirit or essence. The Romans named the protective spirit of a place, Genus Loci. In Scotland many bodies of water were worshipped as deities. In Aberdeen, the River Dee's name was derived from the word ‘deva’, meaning goddess but what spirits lie beneath the surface of our waters now?

Howards End

Lauriston Castle, 2 Cramond Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 6AD

It wouldn't be midsummer without a ravishing country house affair to enjoy at Lauriston Castle, and this year we're delighted to return to the work of Merchant-Ivory with their 1992 adaptation of E.M.Forster's 1910 novel 'Howards End', a romantic drama of class distinctions in Edwardian Britain.

The distinguished cast playing the three intertwined families includes Emma Thompson, in her first Oscar-winning performance alongside Anthony Hopkins, Vanessa Redgrave and Helena Bonham Carter. A complimentary glass of champagne will be served on the terrace before.

Atmosphere is our most popular research and event 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.

Alt-w Fund

Alt-w

The application deadline has now passed.

Initiated in Dundee by Scottish Screen, the Alt-w Fund is for practitioners based in Scotland to make and develop new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what new media creativity can be.

The fund supports artists to explore experimental and interactive practice, make use of technology as both medium and message, and recognise the changing role that digital culture has in our society.

Cycle 15 of the fund will commission and curate work for presentation on the 4.5m high LED screen that welcomes every visitor to the refurbished Music Hall in Aberdeen. The deadline for applications is the 17th March 2023 at 6pm.
