Join us at Towner's Cinema in Eastbourne for a special screening programme to coincide with Ed Webb-Ingall's current exhibition A Bedroom for Everyone at VOLT gallery, Devonshire Collective.

During the event, we will watch A Bedroom for Everyone by Webb-Ingall and A Difficult Place (2023) by Katy Beinart and John Edwards. The films will be followed by a facilitated discussion with the filmmakers, with a focus on filmmaking as a tool for activism.

This event is free to attend, booking required.

A Bedroom for Everyone is an animation by filmmaker Ed Webb-Ingall, stemming from a long-term body of work that asks what the role of filmmaking is in response to the current housing crisis in the UK.

Filmmaker John Edwards and artist Katy Beinart worked with residents of the Phoenix Estate to create A Difficult Place (2023), a film that reveals the true cost of the cost of living crisis, and its devastating effect on individuals. In a series of conversations filmed at Phoenix Art Space, the Phoenix Community Centre, and on the London Road in Brighton, the group discuss how rising food prices, together with the added changes to their local shopping area, have drastically impacted their lives. The film documents individual experiences and perspectives at a local level during this challenging time and shows how the community has come together to support each other through the Phoenix Food Shop. It provides a platform for residents to share their stories more widely, highlighting personal narratives beyond the statistics.


Front Room Film started in 2020 and is a pedagogical screening programme that considers filmmaking and its distribution practices through use of the ‘bundle’ - curated collections of films with extended essays, interviews and archival ephemera. Front Room Film centres facilitating discussion and sharing knowledge through artistic practice.
