Central Saint Martins is pleased to announce Strangelove - an ambitious college wide moving image festival devised and programmed in collaboration with artist Terry Smith (workinprogress) and curator David Gryn (Artprojx).

Using spaces throughout the Kings Cross campus the festival programme will include screenings, installations, talks, workshops, events and symposia to generate cross disciplinary discussions and draw attention to the way moving image has become an inescapable part of our everyday experience.

The festival will celebrate the diversity of moving image practice and explore the relationship between art, fashion, communication design, drama, performance and popular culture featuring the work of students through to prominent and established international artists, designers, directors, screen writers and performers.

19 events, as well as the exhibition of German Film Posters in the Lethaby Gallery, will be open to the public, allowing a glimpse into the fascinating and innovative world of moving image at Central Saint Martins.

Throughout the Festival there will be an information desk within the Crossing which is situated at the front of the Granary Building.
