Rebecca at Arnos Vale Cemetery (Friday 4 March 2022)

Metropolis at Bristol Cathedral (Wednesday 9 March 2022)


Hosted in Bristol’s historic Cathedral, Fritz Lang’s 1927 masterpiece of silent film is sure to be a true spectacle. One of the most influential and pivotal films ever, the screening will be accompanied by a live, improvised organ recital from award-winning composer Dr David Bednall.

The Third Man at Avery’s Wine Merchants (Friday 11 March 2022)


One of the festival’s Vintage Screenings (pairing classic films with thematically linked wine tastings), Carol Reed’s classic film noir adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel will be shown in the historic wine cellar – a fitting setting for this tale of crime and deceit.


Monty Python and the Holy Grail in Redcliffe Caves (Saturday 12 March 2022)

1917 at Bristol Museum (Friday 18 March 2022)
