FACT. 1889 – 2009.
FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology).
I’m a big fan of FACT. I’ve been a member since 2000 when a friend who knew I enjoyed movies gave me 12 months membership as a gift. I’ve renewed my membership every year since.
Twenty years ago ‘Moviola’ as FACT used to be known presented the first ‘Video Positive’ festival. As one of their handouts says: ‘Over the last twenty years FACT has expanded from a Liverpool-based agency into an international leader in art, research and creative technology.’
Yes, FACT has come a long way. The mix of cinemas, bar, coffee shop and exhibition space is a good one and in my experience unique. So Happy Birthday FACT!
