Tickets £10.00 (£8.00 concs.) available here .

Here’s what the festival say:

Julian House’s video for the label is a peculiar mélange of children’s television, 1960s underground animation and evolving op-art mandalas. Using a combination of new digital and old analogue techniques they conjure a world where TV station indents become occult messages and films for schools are exercises in mind control and collective hallucination.

Ghost Box will be screening two film pieces with music and sound by various Ghost Box artists in collaboration with the group Broadcast, these are bookended by a collection short idents, animations and music promos.
