Edinburgh-based Cinetopia is collaborating with The Debutante (a feminist-surrealist magazine), and musician-composers Aurora Engine (Deborah Shaw), and Bell Lungs (Ceylan Hay) to bring audiences ELECTRIC MUSES: a women-led evening of surrealist film and creative, technologically enhanced live music. This unique event will tour three venues through July, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Saturday 9th July (Edinburgh) and Sunday 10th July (Glasgow)

Since the birth of cinema, women filmmakers have used this “electric” art form to tell their stories. With ELECTRIC MUSES we will merge cinema and live, technologically enhanced music to highlight the profound contributions women have made in creative technology art forms.

Cinetopia is showcasing four surrealist films made by pioneering female filmmakers over the 20th century alongside the compositions of two contemporary Scotland-based composers, both of whom use technology heavily as part of their process and performances, Aurora Engine and Bell Lungs.

This screening of ELECTRIC MUSES is part of Film Feels Curious, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk
