Part of Filmic 2017
We’re celebrating the fertile link between music and the silver screen this year as we team up with Watershed and St George’s Bristol for the annual Filmic series.
Filmic 2017 at Colston Hall features screenings of films that push boundaries and have won acclaim for their unique cinematic vision. Crucially, they also feature soundtracks which have been equally celebrated and in the unique setting of our main hall are realised in stunning live performances.
Things kick off on Tue 7 Feb with There Will Be Blood Live – Paul Thomas Anderson’s Oscar-winning film is accompanied by a live orchestral performance of Jonny Greenwood’s score.
On Fri 14 Apr we screen cult hit Under The Skin live with Mica Levi and London Sinfonietta. The intoxicating soundtrack conceived by Mica Levi, who has also recently won acclaim for her score for the film Jackie, also known as Micachu, contributed to the film’s chillingly ethereal power.
Finally, in partnership with St George’s Bristol, we present GoGo Penguin – Koyaanisqatsi – with the band performing their newly composed score for the remarkable cinematic masterpiece.
There’s plenty more going on at Filmic 2017…
