BFVS Filmmaking in Bristol participation in Bluescreen at the Cube Cinema.


The Bluescreen film show events at the Cube cinema https://bluescreenfilms.weebly .com/ are an 'open mike' event were you just turn up with your film (please check rules) and it is shown on a proper cinema screen.


Some members will have their own suitable films (all types acceptable - documentary, fiction, art, music etc.) to take along and hence will get free entry. we will also take some recent short club productions along. If you have worked - in any capacity - on a club production in the last few years then we should be able to juggle films to get members free entry. A good opportunity for members to have their films shown on the big screen to an audience of filmmakers.
