We are all about YOUR Short Films...
Bluescreen have hosted Open Film Screenings of Independent Short Films at The Cube Cinema in Bristol, England since 2001.
Screening Short Films made by Bristol based Filmmakers, from the Amateur & Pro Filmmakers alike.
No need to submit a film..... You just need to turn up with your film(s) at one of our events and we will screen them! Simple as that!
Format wise we like DVD and USB..
DVDs should be playable in a DVD Player (ie. not a data file) and bring a back up disk if you can.
We are now screening from USB Sticks as of May 2014...
Films on 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.
To get the best screening experience at Bluescreen, we suggest your film should be formatted in H264 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.
https://handbrake.fr/ is a great free program than can help you with this.
Films can be up to 20 mins in length and can be about anything at all. We-like-an-eclectic- programme!
We have an Orchestra - The Cube Orchestra re-soundtracks a couple of films from the burgeoning Bluescreen Film Archive, at the start of most events now.
We have DJs - Bluescreen Hi-Fi DJ in the bar throughout the evening.
And if time, we also dig into the Archive to re-screen classic films from Bluescreens past.
We have hosted short film screenings at Festivals in the UK, Europe, USA and organised other film related events at The Cube Cinema since 2003.
We were honoured to be invited over to screen films at the R Eject Film Festival, International Film Festival, Rotterdam 2007; we helped organise the Bristol Filmmakers Festival 2008 and hosted a 10 year Bluescreen retrospective at the Encounters International Short Film Festival 2011.
2013 saw us screening films at Supernormal in Oxfordshire and at Nozstock Festival in Herefordshire.
