The Rough Cut is a free event at Tyneside Cinema for new work and work-in-progress by artists working with the moving image.

For artists, it’s a useful way to share and get feedback on your work in a supportive and unthreatening environment. For everyone else, it’s a chance to see interesting new films.

Each session takes place in the Digital Lounge, a relaxed and informal space on the second floor of the cinema, and is introduced and chaired by a different guest moderator. 

This season The Rough Cut will be chaired by Elinor Morgan, MIMA
