Help sustain Watershed's culturally dynamic and expansive work

Watershed is a social enterprise and a registered charity. As the leading film culture and digital media centre in the South West, we advance education, skills, appreciation and understanding of the arts with a particular focus on film, media and digital technologies.

Supporting us increases our creative capacity to inspire and engage people of all ages in new cultural experiences. With your help we will sustain the relevance, depth and diversity of our programmes so that audiences, artists, and the city of Bristol can continue to share and shape the Watershed experience and help us plan for the future with confidence.

“Rife isn’t just a job, it’s a community brimming with opportunity and positivity”
