    12pm ... The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard

    Two years in the making, TPB AFK is a documentary about three computer addicts who revolutionized the world of media distribution with their hobby homepage. How did Tiamo, a beer crazy hardware fanatic, Brokep a tree hugging eco activist and Anakata, a paranoid cyber libertarian, get the White House to threaten the Swedish government with trade sanctions? TPB AFK explores what Hollywood's most hated pirates go through on a personal level.

    2pm ... Steal This Film

    Waves of repression continue to come: lawsuits are still levied against innocent people; arrests are still made on flimsy pretexts, in order to terrify and confuse; harsh laws are still enacted against filesharing, taking their place in the gradual erosion of our privacy and the bolstering of the surveillance state. All of this is intended to destroy or delay inexorable changes in what it means to create and exchange our creations. Steal This Film's goal is bringing new people into the leagues of those now prepared to think after intellectual property, think creatively about the future of distribution, production and creativity.

    4pm ... Rip! A Remix Manifesto

    Immerse yourself in the energetic, innovative and potentially illegal world of mash-up media with RiP A Remix Manifesto. Let web activist Brett Gaylor and musician Greg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk, serve as your digital tour guides on a probing investigation into how culture builds upon culture in the information age.

    Please note there is no wheelchair access to the cinema room, however there is wheelchair access to the main pub.
