If you were selecting a programme of films to show in the woods, what  would you choose? Here are some of our suggestions…

The mysterious Bioskop has been out and about looking for the right site for its launch event The Bioskop Provokes… films in the woods which is going to take place at 7pm on Sunday 19th September.
Directions to the site and a map will appear on this page on the day…

The screen you can see in the photos above is going to be screen 2 – its in a little gully close to the trees (below) where we’re working out how to hang the main big screen..

Plan B
