Screenings of The Good Dark in Edinburgh (April 19) and Stirling (April 26)

April 17, 2018

There will be screenings of The Good Dark, made by Lucas Chih-Peng Kao, in Edinburgh and Stirling over the next fortnight. First in Edinburgh at the Cameo Cinema, 7pm, Thursday 19 April, and in the Mediterranea Restaurant, Stirling, 7pm, Thursday 26 April. The screenings are part of the unDependence Film Festival, and you can read their whole programme here.

A poet wanders through a desolate house and sees the reanimated lives of Jim and Flo, the previous tenants. As the poet recites his poem, bringing the worlds of the past, present and imagination closer, the couple struggle to grasp the last breath of their relationship.

Ryan helps the Forest Fringe to Pass the Torch

On Friday 11 August, 9pm, an array of filmmakers, musicians and poets will perform at the Cameo cinema to celebrate a decade of art and to look forward to beginning of something new. The event is free, on a pay what you can basis, we all hope to see you there.

This is a live performance, tickets are free and the artist will be collecting donations on a pay as you wish basis at the end of the show. 

This is goodbye, for now. Forest Fringe is leaving the Edinburgh Festival to try out some new adventures elsewhere. This is our goodbye party and in the spirit of the last ten years we hope it will be big, free, eclectic, eccentric, frequently chaotic and occasionally, unexpectedly, very beautiful. Come for film, music, performance, drinks and weirdness with artists including Double Pussy Clit F*ck, Foxy & Husk, Ira Brand, Julia Taudevin, H Giles, Louise Orwin, Richard DeDomenici, Ryan Van Winkle, Tim Etchells and Tom Parkinson, with more to be announced very soon. 

Just as importantly, this event is our attempt to raise some money for another group of artists to create their own space at the festival, just as we did over a decade ago. A passing of the torch. A long drawn-out goodbye and a hope for the beginning of something very new.
