Friday, 18 August 2017 to Monday, 28 August 2017

Watch over 200 bold and creative short films made by young artist filmmakers, brought together in one exhibition: Playback.

The award-winning short films that feature in this interactive exhibition have been created by 16-24 year-olds from all over England, including many young filmmakers from Bristol.
 

Presenting films that cover a wide variety of subjects and art forms, Playback reflects the concerns and vision of a diverse pool of young people working with film today. From narrative films about drag queens, super-heroes, job centres and zombies to animated stories that feature talking goldfish and radioactive snails.

The exhibition is made up of individual touchscreens, giving you the opportunity to choose the films you wish to see, from drama and comedy, to dance and spoken word.
