Advance Tickets for the screening are priced at £6 (£8 on the day)

Our aim is to keep the tickets prices for the film screenings as low as we possibly can to open up the screening for more people... BUT... we do need to cover the cost of the film screening in the cinema, SO...  If you are in the position to help out a little more, please do consider making an extra donation to Oriel Colwyn at checkout.

GREGORY CREWDSON:BRIEF ENCOUNTERS is a fascinating profile of Gregory Crewdson, whose riveting photographs are elaborately staged, elegant narratives compressed into a single, large-scale image, set in small towns or meticulously recreated interior spaces, built on the kind of sound stages associated with big-budget movies.



An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life--moviescapes crystallized into a single frame.



While the photographs are staged with crews that rival many feature film productions, Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the worlds of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper and Diane Arbus. Crewdson's imagery has also infiltrated the pop culture landscape--including his inimitable Six Feet Under ads and Yo La Tengo album art. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters beautifully bares the artist's process--and it's as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves.
