This will be our first Rebel Film Festival outside of Plymouth, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! We’ve got big plans for our event in Bristol… expect a strong line-up of incredible international short films, feature film screenings with Q&A’s, networking parties, delicious local street food and of course, it wouldn’t be Bristol without some amazing craft beer.
The weekend-long festival will be taking place in the Redgrave Theatre on the 23rd and 24th February 2019, with an impressive cinema set-up, pop-up bar and food. Our call for entries is now open and we’ve got a specialist award category for local filmmakers.
Built in 1966 the Redgrave was originally known simply as the ‘Clifton College Theatre’. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country. The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave – an ex-student of the college. After Sir Michael’s death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour.
With a high quality audio visual system, comfortable tiered seating (317 seats) & well-stocked bar we couldn’t have asked for better venue for our first event in Bristol. During the festival weekend we’ll also be setting up a pop-up Rebel themed bar behind the screen to provide extra space for attendees to relax, network and hang out between screenings, with on-site food provided by one of Bristol’s best street food vendors.
