An exploration and celebration of classic cinema, Cinema Rediscovered 2017 will no doubt get a warm welcome from the city’s film fans after making its Bristol debut last year.
The festival was officially launched when the BBC’s film critic Mark Kermode gave the Philip French Memorial Lecture on July 18th.
From July 27th-30th there will be the chance to see some classics unearthed and screened thanks to digital restorations and the revival of print rarities.
A joint project between the Watershed, South West Silents, 20th Century Flicks and Clevedon’s Curzon Cinema & Arts, the event is perfect for cinephiles or those who just want to discover something new.
Some of the vintage films being screened are Howard’s End, The Network, To Die For, Dekalog, The Gentle Sex and Millions Like Us. There will also be workshops and talks throughout the festival.
