Watershed, Ico launch archive festival in UK

Exclusive: The inaugural Cinema Rediscovered festival will host screenings, workshops and the Ico’s Archive Screening Day 2016.

Bristol’s arts venue Watershed is teaming with the Independent Cinema Office (Ico), South West Silents and 20th Century Flicks to launch a new international archive film festival.

Supported by the BFI Film Audience Network’s Film Hub South West & West Midlands, Cinema Rediscovered will run in and around Bristol between July 28-31, 2016.

Taking inspiration from Il Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna, the event will showcase new digital restorations, film print rarities of early cinema and contemporary classics on the big screen.

Programme highlights include the world premiere of the new restoration of British drama The Lion in Winter (1968) ahead of its release later this year through Studiocanal and a presentation of the 4K restoration of Japanese auteur Nagisa Ôshima’s BAFTA-winning English language debut Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (1983), starring David Bowie.
