Just when you thought spooky season was over, Bristol Film Festival is back for one more night this autumn at Arnos Vale Cemetery! Join BFF after dark in Bristol’s very own necropolis. Get a drink from the pop-up bar then make your way through the graveyard to the beautiful Anglican Chapel to take your seat for the show.

New for 2022, BFF are delighted to be offering a limited number of spaces on pre-film Cemetery Tours, guided by one of Arnos Vale’s experts. Learn more about the colourful and fascinating history of the Cemetery after dark, if you’re feeling brave enough!

This November, BFF are thrilled to be screening the dazzlingly original spin on Mexico’s Day Of The Dead mythology, The Book Of Life. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, its astonishing animation is a visual delight, but its poignant story, madcap humour and wildly inventive musical covers make this a treat for all ages.

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!
