Pentagram Cinema Programme Announced

pentagram cinema logoHaphazardly hosted by the inimitable Mr Hopkinson (while his computer performs elsewhere in Supernormal) and with hospitality provided by the divine Blusherettes, the Pentagram tent will be providing vitamin-packed cinematic nutrition all weekend long, with programming from a host of Bristol’s favourite underground and overground cinema nights –

The Bioskop
Present a fragrant (but sometimes toxic) bouquet of fiction, ethnographic film, musicals and artists moving image…. we’ll be lurking in the Pentagram tent and skulking around in the moonlit woods.

Bluescreen Short Film Showcase
Bluescreen host regular events at the Cube Cinema, showcasing the best short films from Bristol’s creative hub of filmmaking talent. For Supernormal we have curated a mindbogglingly eclectic mix of film genres and subject matter, all films under 20 minutes long.

Hellfire Video Club
Present vintage psychotropic celluloid and mind-bending musical delights served up by a group of like-minded geeks hopelessly hooked on oddball sounds and cinema.

Image-ageddon Mix Tape
Short films, found footage, music vids, ads and animation mixed live on the fly by a crew of Pentagram film magi.

Lucky Dip
Gifts of the Lost and Lesser Known aims to bring you an array of rarely seen, would be cult gems from decades past.

Open Film Night – BYO movie
Have you made a short film? 20 minutes or less? Bring it along to have it shown on the big screen, hosted by the Bluescreen team. We welcome all types of film – documentary, art, drama, animation, in fact anything goes! As a special incentive there is a “Supernormal film challenge”; make a film during Supernormal and we will screen it!

Arcane and mysterious cinematic folk traditions both real and imagined pared with live lofi-electro-acoustics.
