Episode 57 – FilmBee ‘Visions of Collisions’ | Projections at Tyneside

For this week’s episode Alice and Amy popped back along to the Tyneside Cinema to check out the most recent event in the Projections programme: Visions of Collisions by FilmBee. FilmBee is a collective based in the North East who experiment with all things film: shooting it, developing it, screening it and creating fab events with it, like this one! This was a weird and wonderful collaboration of ideas and source material, and we learned about the concept of agonism and how that can be thought of in the cinema space.
