The Gallery releases in select London cinemas as part of London Games Festival 2023
A unique way to play
Showcasing the FMV game - interactive film as the convergence of Film and Video Games; The Gallery will screen in various cinemas during the London Games Festival as an official side event from 29th March to 7th April.
Details of venues, dates, screening times and how to buy tickets can be found here.
Written and directed by Paul Raschid, one of the most prolific interactive filmmakers, The Gallery is a thrilling combination of hostage thriller and social drama with a dash of world film festival cinema aesthetic. Two Decades. Two identities. It’s going to take everything you’ve got to survive the night.
The Gallery has been created to engage both film fans and gamers with its blend of high production values, stellar cast and a nuanced script depicting the film’s two time periods - 1981 and 2021 - both of which are of considerable political, social and cultural significance in UK history.
The cinema version lasts around 140 minutes with a screening of both time periods or 70 minutes with a screening of one time period.
The cinema screening takes place with a Facilitator “playing” The Gallery on a lap-top. As the audience enters, they are given “Glowsticks” which they use to vote for their choices. The Facilitator pauses the film for 2-3 seconds at each decision point. The majority choice of the audience as indicated by the “Glowsticks” prevails and the film continues.
