Cinema Rediscovered

Watershed, the home of Cinema Rediscovered, temporarily closed on Tue 17 March. All upcoming screenings and events have been cancelled, and while we did hold out hope that perhaps Cinema Rediscovered could take place in July 2020, unfortunately due to the scale of the pandemic and the uncertainty everywhere, we have had to cancel this year's festival.

We considered many options but came to the conclusion that it would be better to simply cancel the 2020 festival and instead place all our energies into planning for the return of Cinema Rediscovered in July 2021. We will still open next year’s festival with Pam Hutchinson’s Philip French Memorial Lecture.
