Vibrant Images—Vibrant City

Vibrant Images—Vibrant City (Original title: Levande bilder—levande stad) is an anthology compiling new perspectives on film and moving images in urban space gleaned from our five-year EU project, Smart Kreativ Stad.

We have looked into new forms of collaboration through eleven pilot studies, resulting in five new perspectives on moving images. These form the backbone of the five chapters of Vibrant Images—Vibrant City: new perspectives on space, on the expression and format of film, on the role of creators and filmmakers, on spectators and audiences, and on partnerships and structural development.

The anthology presents all that has been tested and accomplished in the project, and the results and areas for development that have emerged. It includes the voices of people who have participated in the project: creators and filmmakers, architects, property owners, researchers, et al. It includes a rich, inspiring collection of images, as well as lists of tangible advice and visions of the essential structural changes that can promote film in urban spaces. In the work with the book, the ongoing evaluation research has been integrated with the more production-focused operations of the project.
