Join CineMe for its third documentary showcase, where we will be showcasing a selection of independent films from Bristol and beyond.

For one night only, CineMe will be screening seven short films and some of the local filmmakers will be talking about their work on the evening.

Film highlights include:-

Isabelle Rose Neill's Transhumance. The film is set in Cévennes, South of France and follows the story of husband and wife, Jean Paul and Lucette, and the small shepherd community, on their yearly trek from lowlands, up through the mountains. The film explores the highs, lows and adventures that happen each summer during the migration of nearly 2000 bell-clad and decorated sheep.

Screen 3 Productions The Life of Brians. This is a poetic documentary piece that follows the everyday philosophocal thoughts and opinions of 6 men called Brian. Using original and stock footage, the film journeys through memory, love, grief and everyday philosophes.

Diana Taylor's Cuba: Sun, Sex and Socialism. A film that looks behind the glossy tourist industry, which is big business in Cuba and exposes the reality of the Cuban's, who are not profiteering from tourism. It exposes the conrast between free enterprise and socialism and the legacy of the Castro brothers, who have controlled the country for more than half a century.

Niyaz Saghari's Uncle Essy. The film explores one of the oldest stallholders in a Friday market of Tehran, who is known for his unique music collection, which he kept and advanced from years of pre revolutions. He became an important figure for the new younger generation of post revolution as a musical source and inspiration.

Tansy Mischaud's and Adam Carboni's Enjoy Your Intermision. The film focuses on longtime projectionist, Roger Babcock, who has been threading film through the Hi-Way Drive In's projectors for more than 40 years. However, with Hollywood no longer offering film prints of their releases, Roger is faced with an ultimatium: upgrade all four of the Hi-Way's 35mm film projectors to expensive digital systems, or close the gates which have so warmly welcomed moviegoers since 1960... For good.

The evening also includes another 2 documentary films and some of the filmmakers will be talking about their work on the night.
