A stroll away from the main LEAF action at Tobacco Dock, the Genesis Cinema hosts the festival’s film programme. On Friday there’s a chance to see Björk’s spectacular concert film ‘Biophilia Live’ (2013), filmed at Ally Pally, followed by a panel discussion on music technology featuring Will Gregory from Goldfrapp. A good way to gear up for the Icelandic pop queen’s royal visit to the UK this summer.
Our pick of Saturday’s cinema is ‘Video Electro’, a two-hour selection of some recent electronic music videos, with a Q&A panel that includes Gazelle Twin, Kate Moross and Scanner. There are also screenings planned of seminal hip hop movie ‘Beat Street’ (1984) and ‘The Art of Sounds’ (2006), a documentary about musique concrète composer Pierre Henry, with Q&As afterwards. Oh, and our Film team reckons that Genesis has the best cinema snacks in London, so leave those disco biscuits at home.
