Expanded Cinema

 
"Expanded Cinema is a film and video practice which activates the live context of watching, transforming cinema's historical and cultural ‘architectures of reception' into sites of cinematic experience that are heterogeneous, performative and non-determined."  
-Narrative Exploration in Cinema

Expanded Cinema is Full Spectrum Features' attempt to broaden some of cinema's boundaries by demolishing the traditional set-up of proscenium viewing. Expanded Cinema challenges its audience to have a more active relationship with cinema, and usually utilizes multiple projections and other multi-media sources to shape itself.

Often Expanded Cinema is seen in art installations or in one night events. Full Spectrum has hosted multiple events that seek to redefine an audience's relationship with the moving image.
