Compass of Resistance Points to Bristol

compass film festivalThe Compass of Resistance takes Bristol on a cinematic journey across the globe, presenting a series of encounters, dialogues, events and screenings that will allow a rare, fresh and innovative look at the notion of ‘resistance’ in international cinema. The main weekend of films and workshops will take place at the Watershed on the 3-4 November; the compass needle turning to India, Russia, Jamaica, Algeria and England.

Beyond the tightly focussed directional gaze of the Watershed programme, a broad range of events will take place at city-wide venues including an urban spoken word freestyle competition, amateur film exhibition, celebration of Afrikan & Afro-Caribbean film culture, a showcase evening of locally-based filmmakers, live musical performance and D&VJ events.
