Tickets to all showcase events are strictly limited and bookings are essential.
FILM – CINEMATICA
The Cinematica showcase celebrates the work of our Film Graduates.
Triptych 2016 represents the culminating showing of three years of creative process and analysis by QACI creative arts students. It is a three-day event for the graduating classes of 2015 in the specialist area of study, the IB Group 6 subjects. Cinematica 9 bears testimony to the work of the Film Graduates.
Film has become a signature art identifiable with QACI students since the Academy’s inception in 2007. Film Studies is unique in that each film is made up of the collaborative specialist roles of Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Screenwriter and Sound Designer. Whilst some students undertake multiple roles it is through their chosen area of expertise that they are assessed. The final product therefore is as much of a journey of cooperation and group dynamics as it is artistic.
MUSIC – COMPOSITION

It is a three-day event for the graduating classes of 2016 in the specialist area of study, the IB Group 6 subjects. The Composition showcase bears testimony to the work of the Music Graduates.
Music allows a means of personal and communal identity and expression and linked with the International Baccalaureate embodies the social and cultural values of individuals and communities. This showcase allows students the opportunity to share their creation with a live audience, demonstrating the diversity and breadth of this cohort’s musical interests.

Visual language is universal, uniting, provoking and informing across cultures and other divides. The visual artist endeavours to communicate ideas, or simply follow the lead of the material, without the supports of spoken or written language.
