    Screening 1: Wicked Whispers
    Doors 7:30pm.

    For centuries, rumors have been surrounding women from all angles, judging and criticizing their every move.

    Wicked Whispers is an immersive cinema experience that aims to showcase the consequences of the lies spread about women through a collection of short horror films. Join us on a journey through different times and societies, as our carefully curated films and performances transport you to an unexpected place.

    He said! She said! They said!

    There is always more to the story than the whispers that surround it. Come find out what happens when someone stands up to the rumor spread about them!

    Exeter is the last place in England that women were hung as witches. We invite you to return to the place where those women were tried, and sentenced to death, for an immersive short film experience, that in strange ways, shapes, & forms, reflect that ancient evil.

    Join us in Rougemont Gardens under the moon and sky on Thursday, Friday or Saturday for one of 6 different site-specific expanded cinema shows, or get a pass and experience them all.

    Craft Cinema has been working with MA International Film Business Students from the University of Exeter and the London Film School to develop a unique and immersive expanded cinema show. This is more than just a screening, it is an experience!

    Expect weird and wonderful short films woven with art and performance, programmed by an international group of cinephiles & professionals, that are destined to take their place at the forefront of the film industry worldwide, delivering their own responses to Exeter’s specific local history.

    This event will take place outdoors. We advise you to dress for all weather and bring appropriate clothing if it is wet or cold. In the event that the forecast predicts weather that may cause a disruption to shows we will contact all customers in advance and follow Exeter Phoenix’s cancellation policy
