We are very excited to announce that at dusk on Thu 11 Sept Shadowing, Watershed’s second Playable City Award, will be unveiled. When the sun goes down in Bristol, Shadowing, the winning submission from design duo Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier (from New York and Treviso respectively) will appear as magical shadows beneath some of the city’s street lights revealing traces of those who walked before.
Marking two decades as the UK’s leading short film and animation festival, Encounters 20th Short Film and Animation Festival will be returning to Watershed from Wed 17 to Sun 21 Sept. This year, the Festival theme is 20/20 Looking Back to Look Forward.
We are thrilled to announce our new Artists in Residence. Our Studio Artists Residency has been awarded to Run To Draw, a collaboration between illustrator Amelia Johnstone and product designer Peter Hathaway. We have also awarded a Micro-residency to performance artist Tom Marshman.
