Do Billboards Dream Of Electric Screens?
Trampoline Lights up the Urban Screens as Three Cities Unite

As dusk falls over the East Midlands this weekend, the cities’ largest digital screens will play host to a moving canvas of films from regional and international artists.

Trampoline, the region’s innovative new media arts organisation, brings this first programme of artists’ shorts to the public screens of the East Midland’s three cities, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester, as part of Trampoline’s 10th anniversary celebration, to taking place on November 29th at Broadway Cinema.

These three programs, “The Citizen,” “These Four Walls” and “The Thousand Yard Stare” operate to either draw the viewer into micro narratives or delicately play with their audience’s experience of advertising.

Web Presence from the festival:





Trampoline has chosen short films, submitted from all over the world, that explore our relationship with the moving image in the public realm. Subtle interventions become interactions with the influx of dynamic digital signage and advertising to our high streets and public spaces. Do Billboards Dream of Electric Screens? endeavours to uncover the possibilities of this new digital infrastructure and how we perceive our developing surroundings. This is an opportunity to watch how cultural content can strengthen local identity and enrich city life.

Whether it’s a brief escape to hinterland or simply man’s best friend chomping on air, Do Billboard’s Dream of Electric Screens? will interact and enlighten as it lights up the three urban screens.
