Colour Out Of Space going on hiatus for 2012

The 2012 edition of Brighton's Colour Out Of Space film and music festival has been cancelled following Arts Council funding cuts. The 2012 edition is being rescheduled for spring next year to give the festival some time to raise extra cash and reapply for funding, with organiser Michael Sippings saying there are plans to extend the festival from a three day event to a week long festival.

Colour Out Of Space is run by Dylan Nyoukis, with Sippings and Karen Constance, and has been running since 2006. Last year it hosted the Bohman Brothers, Jozef Van Wissem, Silvia Kastel & Ninni Morgia and others. More details incoming.
