 Papicha | Mounia Meddour | 2019 | 15 | French (subtitles)

Each month during lockdown we are sharing with you a brilliant find that we have unearthed and that is available to view for free and online. This month we are sharing a special one-off screening of Papicha, courtesy of Filmbankmedia’s brand new VSR Player created especially for community cinemas to share film with their audiences at home.

“Underground discos thud to the beat of dance music as men and women dress to the nines and slip through checkpoints to party the night away. Meanwhile, fingers on triggers, tensions mount between armed police forces and anti-government guerillas. This is Algiers in the 1990’s, and what headstrong fashion student Nedjma, ‘Papicha’ to her friends, doesn’t know, is that her life is about to change forever…

Lifting the lid on the radical events of the Algerian Civil War, Mounia Meddour’s ‘Papicha’ follows the trials and tribulations of a group ofdetermined young women as they come face to face with a new, dangerous reality.”

Papicha, (2019) written and directed by Mounia Meddour and is her first feature-film and a brilliant film for us to mark International Womens’ Day this year.

We will be joined for our post-film discussion by D&G based emerging filmmaker Rachel Shnapp.

The filmbankmedia player offers subtitling options for film screenings.

About Reel to Real Cinema At Home

As we look to explore how we can use collective film watching at home as a means to gather, share ideas and connect we’ve been delving through the vastness of the internet to source interesting and relevant stories for now, on film.

Reel to Real continues to share a film and discussion evening on the second Friday of the month online, until we are able to return safely to our High Street home in The Stove, Dumfries.

How to Watch

This month’s film will be available to watch together at the one-off time of 7pm on Friday, 12thMarch – make sure you join us on time as the film will start automatically, so just like a real screening, if you are late you’ll miss the beginning!

Our film this month is free to watch, but you need to sign up in advance and watching information will be sent out 48 hours before the film goes live.

To sign up please use this link: https://reel-to-real-papicha.eventbrite.co.uk

Please be aware that the filmbankmedia player is not compatible with mobile or tablet screens, and will not cast to a screen, so if you would like to watch on a bigger screen or projector, you will need to use a manual HDMI cable or similar.

Troubleshooting information about using the filmbankmedia VSR player is available here: VSR Troubleshooter.

We’d also love it you could stay for a discussion with emerging filmmaker Rachel Shnapp about the film and some of the themes arising from it, which will take place on our usual Crowdcast platform from 9pm. Sign up and more about the discussion here: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/reel-to-real-papicha

Reel to Real Cinema At Home: United Skates

Reel to Real Cinema At Home: United Skates
Friday, 12th February 2021
Watch live from 7pm
Post-film discussion on Crowdcast 8.45-9.30pm

Each month during lockdown we are sharing with you a brilliant find that we have unearthed and that is available to view for free and online. This month we are delving into new Reel to Real territories courtesy of the BBC iPlayer.

Our film choice in February, is United Skates,a real gem of a documentary directed by Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown, that follows the story of three roller skaters fighting for their communities. These are stories of the places where we build community, of race and prejudice, and the drive and passion of underground subcultures to survive.

“For years, roller-skating rinks have been a constant for African-American communities across the U.S., serving as a meeting ground, a place to have fun and an incubator of iconic hip-hop talents like Queen Latifah and N.W.A.”

As America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community joins forces in a racially charged environment to save the underground African-American subculture of roller skating, which has been overlooked by the mainstream for generations – yet has given rise to some of the world’s greatest musical talents.”

After the film, we invite you to join us over on Crowdcast for a conversation about the film with a special stovie guest.

Reel to Real At Home: Dummy Jim

Reel to Real Cinema At Home: Dummy Jim
Friday, 22ndJanuary 2021
Watch live from 7pm
Post-film discussion on Crowdcast  8.45-9.30pm

It’s January, it’s lockdown, and whilst everything might be looking a bit bleak we invite you to join us – digitally – to share a film together.

This month we would like to share with you a film we last screened at the Stove in 2016, Dummy Jim.

“Dummy Jim weaves fiction, documentary, animation and archive to explore the eccentric adventures of profoundly deaf Scots long-distance cyclist James Duthie who hailed from the close-knit Aberdeenshire fishing community of Cairnbulg and Inverallochy. In 1951, he set out on a lone cycling tour to Morocco.. After three months of pedalling, he reached the Arctic Circle.

12 years in the making, Hulse crafts a multi-layered memorial to a quietly determined maverick and the community that shaped him, with present-day village inhabitants emerging as creative participants.”

The film has now been made available for all to view thanks to the generosity of the director, Matt Hulse, and was released on Youtube on midnight, 31stDecember to coincide with the UK’s official departure from the EU. We are really excited that filmmaker and director Matt Hulse will be joining us for the post film discussion, so make sure to tune in at 8.45pm!

The film includes subtitles.

Elsewhere: First Images

Elsewhere: First Images

Thank you to everyone who took some time to visit Elsewhere last weekend, it filled us with hope to see the town again from fresh perspectives and in new lights.

The first of our images from the weekend are now available, thanks to photographer Kirstin McEwan.

If you weren’t able to attend in person, much of the wonderful work we included as part of Elsewhere is available to view online, see a selection of links below.

Elsewhere was supported by Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Regional Arts Fund.

To begin, head to the Stove café for information about the route and the artworks. The Stove café will be open until 8pm for hot drinks and a tasty vegetable stew, so after you have explored Elsewhere, pop back and warm up.

‘The High Street is somewhere we though we knew, and now it’s different, it’s elsewhere.’ Atlas Pandemica

Elsewhere is the conclusion of a four month project, with a series of artworks and film installations in unexpected corners of the town centre over the weekend of 13th and 14th November, 6-9pm on and around Dumfries High Street.
Films will be projected onto windows and walls of spaces in the town centre. The content of the film artworks comes from the Elsewhere team of artists and have all been developed through the period of the pandemic.
Elsewhere is a creative research project led by artists exploring public space during a time when we as a community are learning to live with the effects of covid-19 on our sense of place. Elsewhere takes place between July and November 2020.
The Elsewhere team will be making artworks, in Dumfries town centre, that experiment with new forms of communal experience, gathering and exchange. We want to encourage people to pause whilst out beyond the confines of our homes, and at all times of day, inviting audiences to make tentative steps back into their town centres and high streets.
Elsewhere is a project led by The Stove Network, with support from the Midsteeple Quarter (community-led regeneration project for Dumfries High Street) and is contributing towards The Stove’s Atlas Pandemica project (10 collaborations with different communities that have responded to the pandemic.)
