The Bristol Radical Film Festival returns to celebrate 40 years of radical British cinema.

The Bristol Radical Film Festival returns for its fourth edition in October 2015. The festival is brought to you by The Bristol Radical Film Festival collective in partnership with The Centre for Moving Image Research (CMIR UWE), Arnolfini and Bristol Experimental Expanded Film (BEEF). 

This year, the festival is dedicated to celebrating the 40th anniversary of The First Festival of British Independent Cinema. Organised by the filmmaker, writer, curator and dramatist, David Hopkins (1940-2004), the 1975 festival was a landmark event in the history of alternative film in Britain. The festival screened overtly political film alongside avant-garde and experimental work, on everything from 35mm to super-8mm, with the express intention of encouraging a vibrant independent film culture that cross-pollinates different forms, approaches and traditions.

The extraordinary programme of the 1975 event is the inspiration behind this edition of the Bristol Radical Film Festival (BRFF) which, along with many other organisations around the world, is part of the contemporary incarnation of politically engaged, aesthetically innovative film culture. That culture remains as challenging and defiant as ever, and the BRFF features a range of contemporary films and filmmakers alongside work from the original programme. 

The festival pass allows you to attend all 8 screenings for the reduced price of £40 / £35 concessions, a saving of £12 pounds! Limited number available, book soon!
