What you'll do

DOORS: 18:30 | FILM STARTS 18:45

It’s back… Venture deep into Redcliffe Caves – for the latest instalment of BFF's infamous Horror In The Caves series. Enter through the military tent on Redcliffe Wharf, grab a drink from our pop-up bar to steel your nerves, and step foot inside one of Bristol’s most unusual and exclusive locations for another season of classic and contemporary horror movies. BFF look forward to welcoming you – if you’re brave enough…

As BFF's 2022 season moves into its final evening, they’re pleased to present the original Candyman – another Clive Barker adaptation – in its 30th anniversary year. A Jordan Peele-produced remake was released last year, but Tony Todd’s outstanding performance as the eponymous urban legend still sends shivers down the spine, and the switch from the original setting of Liverpool slums to a Chicago public housing development allows for some deft commentary on American societal issues.

About Bristol Film Festival

Bristol Film Festival was started by director Owen Franklin in 2015. The Festival provides an alternative experience for lovers of film and cinema, and celebrates the cultural landscape of his home city, Bristol.

The concept is simple: to bring classic films back to the big screen, in some of Bristol’s most iconic and interesting venues, including Bristol Museum, Clifton Observatory, Bristol Cathedral, and Redcliffe Caves.

The films and locations are carefully matched together, and involve unique immersive elements - whether it's live performers, tours of venues after hours, or themed wine tastings, you can expect to leave one of our events having had a film experience unlike any other!
