About this event

Atmosphere | Reface

Friday 22nd July 2022, 8 for 8:30pm. RSVP

Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of the British Film Institute’s Film Feels: Curious season we have set Ukrainian developers Reface a grand challenge. Could they take a classic film and reface the extras with the faces of the audience watching, and in real time too?

On this night, in extraordinary times, we find out.

Based in Edinburgh’s twin city of Kyiv, Reface will use an artificial intelligence to map facial data acquired at Inspace onto the original actor’s bodies. As for the film title, we’re keeping it suitably top secret. For extra deep fakery, the optional dress code is 1963 Paris.

Et voilà, a world’s first.
