Cinema Rediscovered dates confirmed for Bristol in 2018


14 December 2017




Cinema Rediscovered have confirmed their dates for 2018, with the film festival returning in July.

Bringing the finest digital restorations, contemporary classics and film print rarities back to the big screen where they belong, the event will take place between July 26th and 29th at cinemas such as The Watershed and Clevedon’s Curzon Cinema & Arts.

It was clear from the 2017 festival, where 7,689 Weekender Admissions were sold across the 60 film screenings including nine sold-out events.

The third edition of this superb event will celebrate Bristol’s new status as UNESCO City of Film, a global recognition of the city’s outstanding contribution to film culture and provides the perfect excuse for a cinematic city break.

Festival Founder and co-curator Mark Cosgrove said: “The festival provides an opportunity to revisit and reassess the unique experiences of films in their intended environment.

“Other art forms have their temples – museums, galleries, opera houses, theatres. For films, cinema is where they can truly come alive and be rediscovered.”

As well as holding a hugely successful festival, Cinema Rediscovered went on the road in 2017 with 13 dates taking in Nottingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Belfast, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Birmingham, Cardiff and Exeter. Thanks to a partnership with MUBI, Cinema Rediscovered highlights will be made available to audiences across the UK from August to November 2018. – November 2018.

Cinema Rediscovered is presented by Watershed, South West Silents, 20th Century Flicks, Curzon Clevedon Cinema & Arts with partners Independent Cinema Office, Bristol Festival of Ideas, Come The Revolution, Bristol Film Festivals, Into Film, BFI and MUBI plus support from the BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery, Film Hub South West & West Midlands, STUDIOCANAL and Park Circus.
