Bristol's Everyman Cinema celebrate music and film with their annual festival

Bristol’s Everyman Cinema are celebrating the crossover between music and film with their annual festival from Monday 7th to Wednesday 16th May. They currently have a host of new releases on show, and will be accompanying these with two special documentary screenings on the 8th and 9th of May. 

 

Lost in Vagueness & Live Performance - Tuesday 8th May 

 

This preview tells the story of the creation of ‘Lost in Vagueness’ - the legendary after hours party which ran from 2000 to 2007 at Glastonbury festival. Between burlesque shows, trapeze artists, casinos and an infamous wedding chapel, Lost in Vagueness came at just the right time to save Glastonbury from its declining ticket sales. The idea was created by Roy Gurvitz and the documentary made by filmmaker Sofia Olins who attended the party in the early 2000s. 

 

Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits - Wednesday 9th May 

 

For fans of punk, Here to be Heard: The Story of The Slits is one not to be missed. The film documents the career of the world’s first all-girl punk band The Slits, who formed in 1976 and completely changed the musical scene for female artists. This film will be screened at 6.30pm and will be followed by a Q&A with band members Tessa Pollitt, Viv Albertine and original drummer Palmolive.

 

Tickets are priced at £13.80 for adults and £11.80 for concessions. 

 

Other new releases currently being screened at Bristol's Everyman include The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Ready Player One, A Quiet Place and Love, Simon.
