Cinema is all about immersion: offering viewers a window into another world or transporting them to a different time and place. Fabien Riggall took that one step further with the launch of Secret Cinema, creating events that are part film screening and part experiential theatre. Over the past 10 years, Riggall and his team have created lavish sets and immersive experiences based on a range of cult films from Star Wars to 28 Days Later, and pioneered a new form of live entertainment in the process. 

Riggall started his career in film as a runner and worked his way up, going from working as assistant producer to producing short films. He studied at the New York Film Academy and founded short film association Future Shorts.
