Cinema Walk (Two) Guided walk with Mark Fuller
Join local film enthusiast and historian Mark Fuller for the second of two walks that between them take in the landmarks and personalities of cinema in central Bristol from the 1880s to the present day.
Ideal for a little exercise (all walks are flat or downhill from their starting points) before settling down for the cinematic wonders of the rest of Cinema Rediscovered.
This walk will start at 09:00 by the College Green bus stop, and end around 10:30 at Castle Park.
Weather permitting, there will be visual aids with archive photographs and clips to help illustrate the talks at each stop.
This event is part of Cinema Rediscovered and Future City Film Festival. Future City Film Festival normally takes place biennially in the autumn but had to be postponed last year due to the pandemic. It will now run through 2022 as a series of special events with the support of the British Film Institute, awarding funds from National Lottery.
Mark Fuller is a retired bookie and film enthusiast, who has been involved in the silent film scene in Bristol for over twenty years, helping out at Bristol Silents, Slapstick and now South West Silents, for whom he curates the Club Screenings. Since retirement he has been able to revive his various research projects on early film screenings in Bristol, and has written for Bristol Ideas about the elusive Augustus Rosenberg, the showman/inventor who brought cinema to Bristol in 1896. Otherwise, he is a regular at the various cinemas in Bristol, watching films old and new, and at archive film festivals here and abroad.
