Mark Cosgrove’s Blog – 25th Sept

Cinema Curator at Watershed and Chair of the Film Hub South West, Mark Cosgrove feeds back on the highs and lows of Watershed’s screenings this week…

The documentary on musician and activist M.I.A provided a strong addition to the continuing demand for BlacKkKlansman and Cold War. Whilst those two – even in their 5th and 4th week respectively of release – continue to dominate. Matangi/MAYA/M.I.Ahas delivered a healthy opening weekend and was the highest of our new releases. Other new releases Faces Places and Climax did slightly less but still attracted healthy admissions, especially given they were both on split shows.

This coming weekend we have Encounters Film Festival and new openers The Wife and Skate Kitchen so space is at a premium and I’ll have to finally drop BlacKkKlansman, TheMiseducation of Cameron Post and Cold War. We also have no space for a 2nd week of Matangi/MAYA/M.I.A, which is crazy given we did so well on it, however looking beyond next week there may be space to bring it, as well as any of the above, back.
