Screenings At

Small venues and spaces such as local village and town halls, galleries, arts centres etc. have the ability to host regular screenings of newly released films to local audiences. But many don’t realise they can, or know how to go about it.

The Snake

a feature length film.The story centres on a girl, of East European parents, who arrived in Australia as a baby. When she is about 9 or 10 she is abandoned by her mother who returns to Europe. Later, when in her early twenties, she attempts to create an identity for herself from memories and snippets of research, drawn together while working as a cadet journalist. But are these memories or fabrications – the truth or just stories? The film is set in a number of different times. The script contains a number of storylines proceeding in parallel, informing each other in a non-linear fashion.

Paul Corcoran

Artistic DirectorOriginally from Queensland, Paul has worked continuously in theatre, film, television, and cinema exhibition. In 1985 he founded Black Inc, a small professional theatre company specialising in 20th century European works, where he directed many productions for over a decade in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne. He has worked as a script consultant for the Australian National Playwrights’ Conference, Playbox Theatre in Melbourne, Warner Roadshow Studios in Queensland and The Queensland Film Office. In 1999 Warner Bros International Television Los Angeles bought the rights to ‘Dark Realm’, a television series Paul had co-created (produced by Warner Bros UK). In the UK he was commissioned to write a play and in 2006 founded Kino, the UKs first purely digital cinema. The 91-seat cinema in Kent became an early participant of the UKFCs Digital Screen Network and In 2006/7 Kino was nominated for awards for Best Exhibitor and Innovation (RAAM). Paul developed a business model to support the fledgling digital exhibition sector, provided a generous boost to independent film distribution, and established a disruptive profile within the UK and European exhibition industries. He was invited to participate in the UKFCs Working Party to deliver solutions to ‘the digital roll-out’, and addressed conferences in the UK and Europe as a keynote speaker/panel member for digital cinema sessions. He was nominated and accepted as a Fellow into the RSA London, for his services in combining business innovation with ‘state of the art’ technology in a pioneering industry. His writing projects have been supported by Film Victoria and the NSW Film & Television Office. Most recently Paul has been trialling film screenings in a range of venues seeking to bring cinema to local audiences affordably, devising a theatrical business model to enable sites of all sizes to benefit from the technology that exists to make this possible. Paul is Artistic Director of Theatre South where he develops new writing and supports a range of arts projects, and Business Development Manager for Screenings At.
