The role of Exhibition Invigilator Volunteer

There are two exhibitions happening in the University of Brighton gallery this year, both running from Friday 10th November to Saturday 9th December.

Fake News – is an exhibition that re-creates significant newspaper front pages from Brighton Rock and a host of British thrillers.

Christian Marclay’s Looking for Love – is a video piece in which the needle of a record player is raised and dropped again and again, searching for the moment in assorted songs when the word “love” is heard. Marclay filmed his performance with a tiny camera used in surgical operations and captures, in sharp detail, his attempts to “look for love” on the record.

We are looking for Exhibition Invigilators for front of house, to supervise the exhibition work, meet and greet the public, help with evaluation/feedback, hand out information to visitors and assist other venue/CINECITY staff at the exhibition.

Volunteers can request free tickets to screenings, based on the number of shifts they do (subject to availability).

Time commitment

Both exhibitions are open Monday – Friday 11am-7pm and Saturday 11am-4pm. Weekday shifts will be divided into blocks of 11am-3pm, 3pm-7pm. An invigilation shift lasts 4 hours. Volunteers are encouraged to take one a week throughout the Film Festival, but there is no minimum commitment.

A gallery induction will be held on Thursday 9th November at 5:30pm which all volunteer invigilators will be expected to attend.

WELCOME TO CINECITY 2017! 15th edition
10-26 November

Back for its 15th year, we’re thrilled to bring you two weeks of previews, exhibitions, live scores, Q&As, workshops and special events.

Taking the 70th anniversary of Brighton Rock as inspiration, this year we celebrate Brighton in all its glory. Enjoy a programme of events to celebrate the film that put Brighton on the movie map, including a 35mm screening of the Boultings’ acclaimed 1947 adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel Brighton Rock, the premiere of a live commission You Want Me To Say I Love You and a related exhibition.

Since its inception in 2003 CINECITY have worked with musicians and partners to present, commission, and create live cinema events. This year we present two brand-new scores for classics The Lodger, scored live by Covent Garden Sinfonia, and Metropolis, with a new score by Factory Floor commissioned by London Science Museum.

Exhibitions this year include work by both local and international artists, with moving image presented in the gallery and cinema space. Explore FAKE NEWS: The British Cinema Newspapers, an exhibition that re-creates significant newspaper front pages from Brighton Rock and a host of British thrillers, then watch as Christian Marclay scours vinyl in his film Looking for Love.
