WHAT THE HELL IS BLUESCREEN?
Bluescreen at 10.....
Bluescreen has been running short film nights at the Cube Cinema, Bristol for 10 years (!), showcasing the work of local Bristol filmmakers.
Evolving from past film jams & experimental screen events held at the Cube, Bluescreen hosts (bi -) monthly walk-in independent film programmes.
Giving people, from first time filmmakers to seasoned professionals, the opportunity to just turn up and screen their films. So come down, hand in your film and it will be on screen later in the evening!
We receive no films beforehand and adhere to a no censorship policy regarding film content, the only conditions we apply is a 20 minute time limit on length of films, but this is only so that we can screen as many films as possible!
This Bluescreen ethos has worked well, with anything from one to three hours worth of films through the door every event to screen, producing an entertaining and eclectic mix of films, from mini dramas to skate films to animation and beyond!
We try to screen any format but easier if its DVD or Mini DV, though we might be able to handle memory sticks from time to time!
In the bar resident DJs 'Bluescreen Hi-Fi' play records; people chat, drink and talk films!
And The Cube Cinemas' very own in-house Orchestra has been kicking off proceedings, by performing an improvised soundtrack to some bluescreen films old and new!
We continue to make and take DVD compilations of films screened at Bluescreen and showcase them at Festivals - Local, National & International - Glastonbury, The Big Chill and Shambala, Supernormal... Also we have screened at The Groovy Movie Picture House (http://www.groovymovie.biz/). And at The 2007 Rotterdam Film Festival. A Bluescreen compilation was also screened at the ATA in San Francisco. See the blog for info of our outside events.
Bluescreen is open to discussing ideas/live soundtracks/ collaborations & future Festival screenings.

EVEN OLDER NEWS
August 2009 - Shambala Festival
Shambala, without doubt is one of our favourite festivals. We had a ball!
This year we were part of a group of people behind the Minds Eye Cinema Tent (SDR Cinema), ie. The Cube Cinema plus friends. Bigger than last years tent and amazingly decorated, with a lovely chandelier, bunting and straw bales as seating! Well done to all the decor crew!
But in typical Bluescreen fashion, all didnt go to plan! We 'lost' 1 of the 2 DVD packs of Bluescreen films we brought along! The one that was lost had on it all the recent Bluescreen films! Bugger! So we had to screen 2007/8 compilations instead. And the missing DVDs? Well they turned up the next day in the van!
The rest of the weekend went off really well, with the Cinema tent packed out every night.
Thanks to all who worked and to the people at Shambala for inviting us back again.
Big Bluescreen congratulations to Esther May Campbell, whose film 'September', has won a BAFTA Award for the best Short Film of the year. Long term friend of the Cube Cinema and of Bluescreen as well, Esther has screened many of her previous films at Bluescreen over the years. So fantastic news and we send our congatulations to Esther and all who worked on September! Cant wait for the next one!
A week later...The Cube Cinema held its own awards ceremony, in celebration of the Bafta win for 'September', and bluescreen were invited by Esther to introduce the BAFTA award winning film. Thank you Esther and all at the Cube, for a great party!
In February, Bluescreen went to The 2009 Berlinale, Film Festival
