MEDIANET in THE GYM
A partnership between Free Theatre and Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision (formerly the Film Archive) sees a return of the Medianet digital video and sound facility. This is an exciting addition to Free Theatre's New Works and Education Programme here in The Gym. Medianet features over 1000 short films, features, documentaries, television commercials and music videos.
Formerly based in the Old Library, the facility has not had a permanent home since the earthquakes. Arts Centre Chief Executive André Lovatt says the addition of the Medianet facility in The Gym is a great reason for people to visit the Arts Centre and engage with the Free Theatre: 'This facility is an excellent resource for a diversity of ages - it's great to see it back'. Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision has worked in partnership with Free Theatre since 2001 to provide Christchurch with access to a cross-section of its collection and for special interloans from Wellington.
We will also be developing playlists that focus in particular on experimental film, recordings of experimental performance, and historical recordings of Christchurch as the city regenerates. Films include:
