Fourteen participants (all aged over 50) are visiting Bristol this week from Turkey, Romania, Portugal, Slovenia, Italy, Iceland, Greece, France, Netherlands and the UK to create a new audio tour or sound walk, around Bristol's historic Harbourside.
This Easter holidays, let Watershed help you to keep your little ones amused with our family-friendly matinees all based around the theme of flying. Let your imagination fly away with four fun-filled films that will transport you to worlds where anything is possible!
Watershed is pleased to announce that it is to be part of the new Arts Council England (ACE) National Portfolio. This will provide funding for 2012 - 2015.
Throughout June and July at Watershed
This year marks the centenary of film composer Bernard Herrmann's birth in June 1911.
Herrmann changed the way film music was thought of with groundbreaking scores for films like Hitchcock's Psycho and North By Northwest. His career spanned creative collaborations with Orson Welles on Citizen Kane to Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver.
Both workshops are designed to ensure participants increase skills and confidence gradually and discover how new technologies can add value to their everyday lives. Participants will also be encouraged to share personal memories and experiences throughout the creation process to inspire a dialogue across different European countries.
Watershed is delighted that some of our young filmmakers who produced a five-minute docu-drama The Box have been nominated for a First Light Award in the 'Best Film by Over 13s' category. The winning films will be announced on 15 March in a prestigious awards ceremony at The Odeon Leicester Square which some of the young people will attend.
If you're one of our regular visitors you will have been enjoying the Watershed experience with an increasingly diverse range of people. We're an open and diverse venue with a broad artistic programme that engages with cultures both locally and globally - everyone is welcome and we're proud to see you all come through our doors or visit us online.
We'd like to maintain the high quality of experience at Watershed for everyone and to achieve this we need your help.
