Bristol’s week in film: February 28-March 5 2020

The Blumhouse take on Universal’s Invisible Man franchise is this week’s big release. Interesting alternatives include Dark Waters, True History of the Kelly Gang, Portrait of a Lady on Fire and a handful of screenings of Richard Stanley’s Colour Out of Space. Many cinemas also have previews of Pixar’s Onward on Saturday.

Several film festivals return this week, including the Bristol-based Wilderland wildlife film fest and the ever-popular Found Footage Film Festival. Down at the Watershed, the two-month Filmic festival kicks off with a screening of Dennis Hopper’s classic Easy Rider, which launches the fest’s era-defining soundtracks strand.

Oh, and if you were planning to attend the Making Change event at Totterdown’s Old Picture House, you should note that has been postponed because of storm damage to the cinema.
