Secret Cinema is an immersive experiential film company, founded, curated and directed by Fabien Riggall, encorporating a number of associated off-shoot ventures, including Future Shorts, Future Cinema, Secret Music, Secret Screenings, Secret Youth, Secret Hotel, Secret Books and Secret Swimming. Largely focussing on creating elaborate, site-specific worlds typically based around a film, Riggall has successfully spearheaded a cultural, cinema movement where the lines between reality and fiction are increasingly blurred. Each production merges a film's narrative into reality. Riggall has created over 18 productions of movies, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Prometheus, and held simultaneous screenings in London and Kabul.
"We've got an opportunity to create a secret movement," Fabien Riggall says. "I truly believe that secrets can be kept by millions of people.".
Riggall conceived Future Shorts, aiming make cinema more rock and roll, showcasing filmmakers like a record label would with music. Future Shorts was curated like a mixtape, exhibiting shorts from around the world tied together with an emotional or cross cultural unifying story strand.
