The team

Lisa Brook – Artistic Director & CEO

Lisa is the Founder and Director of Live Cinema UK, establishing the organisation in 2014 to support the national live cinema sector. Lisa fell in love with live cinema events whilst working in her previous roles at Sheffield Doc/Fest and Leeds International Film Festival, and not finding a national organisation to advise on producing work for big screens with extra live performance and interactivity, she set up Live Cinema UK to do just that. In December 2023, she joined the British Council part time as Creative Technology Relationship Manager, supporting XR and immersive collaborations between the UK and countries around the world.

Favourite film: The Passion of Joan of Arc (preferably with new exciting live score…)

Kate is a researcher, content creator and digital producer. Kate creates documentary video as well as 360 degree immersive video for online audiences. As the immersion coordinator for Live Cinema UK, Kate works with artists to create immersive content for fulldome exhibition, and looks at ways to use livestreaming to bring remote locations and events to in-person and online audiences. She also oversees the administration of the Europe-wide Fulldome Creative Network, bringing together fulldome practitioners and venues to make the medium more accessible to mainstream audiences and diverse artists.
