Please note: this season finished in May 2013
After the symphonic success of last year's inaugural festival, Filmic is back with another brilliant line-up of film, music, talks, and special events throughout March, April and May.
A joint collaboration between Watershed and St George's Bristol, this unique festival of film and music is dedicated to pursuing the notion of 'the filmic', whether connected to an actual film or in a musician's head. It celebrates their rich relationship, bringing together an impressive range of respected local and international musicians who have been profoundly influenced by film.
The focus in March will be on composer, producer, artist and collaborator John Parish, perhaps most well known for his acclaimed work with PJ Harvey, during April we'll take a close look at Goldfrapp's Will Gregory and May's spotlight will be on Philip Glass, who is quite possibly the most legendary composer of our time.
You can expect concerts and talks themed around these respected musicians, as well as film programmes in our regular Sunday Brunch slots. There will also be appearances from the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain's Douglas Hart and other special guests.
Below are details of the events and screenings that are already confirmed - please keep checking back as more events are confirmed and published.
Special ticket offer: all Watershed Filmic ticket holders can get £1 off top price tickets to St George's Filmic events, and all St George's Filmic ticket holders can get £1 off Watershed Filmic films and events.

March is Women's History Month and this diverse season celebrates the many ways women activists have communicated their struggle and resistance through film.
Wake in Fright
This Deliverance-flavoured 1971 Australian horror ('the most terrifying film about Australia in existence' according to one Nick Cave) is a cold-sweat visceral nightmare - now restored and even more mesmerising.
