We are excited to be screening Stanley Kubrick's horror classic "The Shining" at this year's Belfast Design Week. Based on the popular Stephen King novel, The Shining was given the Kubrick treatment through its use of fantastic set design, pattern and photography.

We'll be taking a look behind the scenes of Kubrick's films and design with a special talk by The Stanley Kubrick Archive.  

Oh, and every attendee will get an invite to our event reception and an exclusive design film night souvenir by Belfast-based designer Prints by Julz!

About the archive

The archive of acclaimed filmmaker Stanley Kubrick is the largest archive held at the Archives and Special Collections Centre and one of the most unique cultural collections from the latter half of the 20th Century. 

Kubrick maintained a high degree of control over his work and often working from home, was able to hold onto materials and resources that were generated by his rigorous and detailed pre-production and production work. These unique materials offer an extraordinary insight into his creative processes and the times in which he worked.

The archive spans the entirety of Kubrick's career from his time as a photographer for Look Magazine to his final film Eyes Wide Shut. The main concentration is of records created during the development and making of his films. There is also material related to his unfinished projects particularly AI: Artificial Intelligence and Aryan Papers and records created posthumously relating to projects such as the creation of DVD and video re-releases, documentaries and books about Kubrick and his work.

The archive includes draft and completed scripts, research materials such as books, magazines and location photographs. It also holds set plans and production documents such as call sheets, shooting schedules, continuity reports and continuity Polaroids. Props, costumes, poster designs, sound tapes and records also feature, alongside publicity press cuttings.
