This weekend sees The Watershed cinema in Bristol celebrate their annual Cinema Rediscovered festival with a whole bevvy of titles that have been unearthed for your delight on the big screen.
There’s a retrospective of Nicolas Roeg’s classic films including the seminal Walkabout, alongside the Cary Grant & Ingrid Bergman thriller Notorious. As well as an excellent line-up of films, there’ll be plenty of talks and archive material that you won’t experience anywhere else – The Observer’s Simran Hans will be heading the Philip French memorial lecture with a look into the future of film criticism, and the Independent Cinema Office will be displaying rare archive footage of the New Towns movement from the South East of England.
Our favourites include special screenings of the existential film Santa Sangre by Alejandro Jodorowsky and the stomach-churning satire, La Grande Bouffe (do not eat before seeing this one!).
Moviola will be at Cinema Rediscovered 2019 as part of the Beyond Boundaries all-day workshop. This exciting programme provides information and practical guidance on how key figures within the curation and programming sector have enabled small community cinemas and societies get audiences and market effectively to them from across the country. Speakers include the collective The Final Girls who specialise in woman-led horror inflected films, Karen Alexander and Come The Revolution (focussing on black and minority film).
Neil Ramjee will be present to give some tips on how to go about marketing films to your audiences, legislation, certification & the benefits that you can be part of a wider network like Moviola. He’ll also be on-hand to answer any questions and give any advice to community cinemas with any challenges or ideas to help bring in new and younger audiences.
