Cinema Rediscovered: Archive Sessions 

Back for its third edition, and with a discount for film hub members, Cinema Rediscovered is your chance to explore film reframed, restored and rediscovered.

Bristol, Watershed & Clevedon, Curzon & others
Thu 26 – Sun 29 Jul

We’re excited to offer a discounted pass for the third edition of Cinema Rediscovered, bringing the finest digital restorations, contemporary classics and film print rarities back to where they belong – on the big screen. Some of the most distinctive voices in cinema curation will also open the conversation on the importance of reframing and re-presenting archives, and in shifting our perspective on the past.

Speaker guests include Jemma Desai (Founder of I am Dora), The Final Girls, Joan Parson (Time is Now), Sally Griffith (Anim18), Charlotte Harman (Compass Presents) and writer/curator Karen Alexander.

Co-presented with BFI Film Audience Network (FAN) partners including Film Hub North, now leading on major FAN wide screen heritage activity, this is the first in a series of initiatives aimed at inspiring and challenging the exhibition and archive sector to reframe film heritage in the context of BFI2022 priorities and beyond.

This year there will be an expanded film critic’s Talent Campus led by Watershed’s Cinema Producer, Tara Judah, inviting aspiring and early career critics to reflect on the state of film criticism, marking the anniversary of influential critic André Bazin. Also join us for a series of Archive Sessions with producers, curators, musicians and archivists designed to inspire and inform today’s cinema professionals.

For members we’re delighted to offer a discounted pass (£50 instead of £80 full price). Simply email for the discount code.
