Netflix has announced more details for FYSee – an exhibition space that aims to bring the best of Netflix’ library to life for industry and guild members (and it doesn’t hurt that its leading into Emmy voting this season). The multi-level, 24,000 square foot experiential space launched on Sunday, May 7 with a private kick-off party, and on Monday, May 8, FYSee hosted an “In Conversation” with Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey as he discussed the show that started it all, House of Cards.
Netflix’s FYSee will feature a full month of programming designed to connect the industry with the shows, creators and talent they love in wholly new and unusual ways. FYSee’s goal is to combine diverse, globally reaching content, and one-of-a-kind conversations and events, with above and below-the-line displays and interactive installations to create a kind of singular experience unique to Netflix.
#NetflixFYSee has cordially invited you (yes you!) to an event for Five Came Back on Tuesday, May 16. Narrated by Meryl Streep, Five Came Back is a documentary series following 5 prolific directors who brought the stories of WWII to the world, as told by Francis Ford Coppolla, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Greengrass, Laurence Kasdan, and Steven Spielberg. The event will be by invitation only, so please RSVP at [email protected]. There will be a 8PM screening followed by a panel discussion with Laurent Bouzereau, Catherine Wyler and David Wyler.
The space is anchored by installations surrounding new Netflix hits such as The Crown and Stranger Things which already made an impact on the awards circuit. The Crown garnered Golden Globe wins for Best
Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actress – Drama as well as SAG Awards for both Claire Foy and John Lithgow in their respective categories.
