We are delighted to share this wonderful video filmed by UWE Student volunteer Hattie Williams – it really captures the glamour of our gala event at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, where we screened the screwball classic Bringing Up Baby starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant – this was “event cinema” with bubbly on arrival, live vintage music, cocktails and canapes, plus Hollywood glamour – Bristol style.
If you are coming to our gala screening of Bringing Up Baby on Sunday 17 July we’d be really grateful if you could book by early so we can get a good idea of how many canapes to order!

Great photo of Cary Grant receiving his US citizenship in 1942. But did you know that he always had a soft spot for his hometown Bristol and returned every year?
Make the pilgrimage to our festival celebrating Cary Grant’s Bristol roots, kicking off this Friday 8 July with a curtain raising screening of Hitchcock’s Notorious. Watch the famous wine cellar scene in an actual wine cellar – at Averys Wine Cellars in partnership with Bristol Film Festival’s “Vintage” Screenings series. Their last drink-along screening sold out twice-over, so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
Full festival programme available here.
We’ve had a beautiful poster designed for us by local artist Sam Bessant of @CultFilmPosters – we love the subtle Art Deco background and the 1930s typeface. A huge thank you to Sam and hope you all love it as much as we do.
