[open screen short film night]

Short Films from the BA (Bristol Area)

Wed 29 May 2019 // 19:30

Tickets: £3/£2 (Film makers in for free, one per film)

Welcome to the 3rd Bluescreen of 2019, in their 18th year of Screening Short Films at the Cube Cinema!

And in true Bluescreen style expect another very eclectic mix of locally produced Short Films.

Bluescreen is The Cube's and Bristol's longest running Short Film Night and YOUR Open Screen night for local film makers to bring in and screen their short films.

Any film genre is welcomed – the more eclectic mix of films we get the better we like it!

New 2 hour Bluescreen! Read on… We’ve been chatting and think we need to put a limit on the number of films we receive in at an event. Reason being, over the last year we have had several nights, where we have had 2 -3 and a half hours’ worth of films in, which on one hand is great but it ends up being a very long night for all and the last few films shown only have the filmmaker and friends left watching. So to make it fairer for all, we are going to trial limiting Bluescreens to 2 hours total screening duration, and also to restrict one film to one filmmaker. This will then allow all films to be screened at a reasonable hour and also give the opportunity to the audience to stay and watch them too. SO WHAT WE ARE BASICALLY SAYING IS, IF YOU GOT A FILM, GET DOWN EARLY!

Films can be up to 20mins long and must be on Memory Stick (formatted for VLC Player) or DVD (formatted for a DVD Player). No Hard Drives please.

USB  - Digital Film Files should be clearly marked with your name, film title and our name - BLUESCREEN, so it can be quickly found by our projectionist.

DVD - Should be playable in a DVD Player (ie. not data files) and bring a backup disk if you can.

To get the best screening experience at Bluescreen, we suggest your film should be formatted in H264 (.mp4) video compression, with AAC compression for audio. And limit the data rate to 15,000 kbits/sec and films should be no larger than 5GB per file.

If you've not got a film, come along and support/meet other film makers and/or get inspired to make a film yourself and its a great way to get involved in Bristol's film making community.
