An empowering and exciting weekend of cinema to arrive at Watershed next month

Posted on: 10 Aug 2022

An array of cinematic talent will arive in BS1 next month in a jam-packed programme designed to inspire.


Taking over much-loved harbourside venue, Watershed, Cables & Cameras present 'INSPIRED' - a programme of VR workshops, keynote speakers and short film screenings and previews to celebrate home-grown filmmakers of colour from across the country.


Running from Friday 2 until Sunday 4 September, this event has something for everyone, whether you're trying to enter the film industry, looking to develop your craft or just looking to discover films by exciting creatives.


More information and tickets can be found via Watershed's website.



Contributers at this event come from one of the UK’s most empowering creative teams, Anthony and Teanne Andrews of the award-winning We Are Parable, who guide audiences on how to engage with international events in Black cinema.


Also present is Somali feminist art collective dhaqan collective presenting the premiere of the acclaimed Somali film The Gravedigger's Wife, alongside other exciting names in a packed schedule across a weekend set to explore Black / POC culture and talent both in front of and behind the camera.


The weekend's programme features the aforementioned screening, a keynote speech from Pierre Godson-Amamoo entitled 'Showcasing Our Culture', and a Q+A fronted by Leon Oldstrong, among other cinematic talents.


Mark Cosgrove, Cinema Curator at Watershed, said in a statment: “We are delighted to partner with Cables & Cameras for a 2nd edition of Inspired.


"The combination of Watershed and Cables & Cameras creates an exciting and strong platform to showcase and connect diverse new and emerging talent from Bristol and further afield.”
