Catalyst Arts presents as part of FIX09: T5 Field Cinema by Dan Shipsides
3 August 2009 09:00 – 05 October
T5 field cinema
Small groups of people going to remote-ish and pertinent locations to watch films and artist videos.
This is the launch of artist Dan Shipsides’ ongoing project of informally showing artist and feature films in interesting remote locations. It utilises a T5* generation VW van, converted as a campervan to screen videos in remote locations (screen, video projector and petrol generator).
The T5 field cinema is supported by a forum which will bring together people, films and locations. Participants can use the forum to involve themselves and help initiate or propose screening events.

It’s Belfast based with potential screening locations initially within an hour or two drive of the city – but anyone can take part via the forum and potentially in person.
T5 field cinema is launched as part of FIX 09 – the 8th Catalyst Arts performance art biennial, which this year focuses on participatory aspects of contemporary live art practice. Screenings will take place during the week of the festival, which runs from from 26 September – 4 October 2009.
* T5 – the 5th generation of VW van – lineage of the cult Split and Bay window vans.
