Huge congratulations must go to Sophie Shippen, one of the Future Producers, Watershed's development programme for 18-25 year olds: she will be jetting off to the world's oldest film festival next week having been selected to represent the UK to attend the Venice Days, the independently run festival sidebar which is modelled on Cannes' respected Directors' Fortnight.
We've had our ears to the ground listening to your feedback for a long time, and have noted two things that keep on cropping up above all the many requests: film and food deals, and the ability to take more bottled drinks into the cinema.
Well, wonder no more: we are delighted to announce both of those requests have become a reality! You can now take any of our bottled drinks from the Café/Bar into the cinemas with you and from Tue 4 Sept we are introducing Cinébites, our new, early week cinema meal deal.
See No Evil went off with a bang last weekend with Mail, Maps and Motion, a large-scale night of music, film and projections curated by Watershed's Clare Reddington (Director, iShed and the Pervasive Media Studio) and Mark Cosgrove (Head of Programme). When all 2,500 of the audience had filed away, the equipment was packed up and the Passenger Shed was restored to full working car park status, Clare sat down to reflect on an incredible night.....
This Summer we are super-excited to be joining forces with Bristol's newest venue Big Top@Creative Common for a unique creative summer school that will encourage kids to explore the world behind the cinema screen.
