Pop up cinema for refugees

Pop-up cinema for refugees in Calais, France

In September Secret Cinema hosted an outdoor movie night for refugees in Calais, France. For this purpose an inflatable movie screen was the perfect way to set up a movie night almost instantly.

Shortly after visiting the event, Fabien Riggall, founder of Secret Cinema, said: “It’s the inaction when faced with the biggest movement of refugees since the second world war that gets me. As a cultural organisation, we should react to this.“

Around 1000 refugees enjoyed the film screening
