Bristol's Filmic presents world renowned composer Philip Glass, Goldfrapp's Will Gregory, PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, 'Drokk' by Portishead's Geoff Barrow and BBC 'Life of....' composer Ben Salisbury as part of a three-month mash-up of film, music, talks, special live events.
A unique joint venture between St George's Bristol, a Georgian church turned leading chamber music venue celebrated for the bell-like clarity of its acoustics, and Watershed, Filmic is a different kind of film and music festival, dedicated to pursuing the notion of 'the filmic', whether connected to an actual film or in a musician’s head.
St Georges's Bristol hosts performances from composer/performer/producer Philip Glass alongside PJ Harvey associate John Parish, Goldfrapp's Will Gregory, Drokk aka Portishead's Geoff Barrow and BBC 'Life of Mammals' composer Ben Salisbury.
Here at Watershed we will be hosting intimate talks and screenings including Philip Glass (who scored The Hours, Kundun and Koyaanisqatsi among many others) in conversation with Charles Hazlewood, Bristol-based John Parish talking about his film scores and musician Will Gregory curating a selection of films, which have inspired and influenced his own music. More details coming soon!
