Over the last year, we have been working in partnership with Tusko Films releasing films that reflect on the weird and wonderful city that we live in.
“The films contain a great diversity of groups and people from across the city. Contributors talk about the ‘good, bad and the ugly’ of Bristol. It’s been a really fun and eye-opening project to work on,” says Jake J. Smith, Tusko’s co-founder.
The films have been screened at events and released via the Bristol24/7 website and social media channels. The first of the series – Bristol Voices focuses on diversity. The second is a documentary of the Bristol24/7 young chefs programme and autumn feast. Finally, watch out for our groundbreaking film Talking LGBT+ Bristol. looking at 100 years of LGBT+ history in Bristol.
We want to say special thanks to all our contributors, who range from British Sign Language users, graffiti artists, Nordic walkers, young people, the business community, drag queens and more.
“This is the beginning of an exciting journey working with Tusko. We want to capitalise on the power of film, to inspire others and celebrate the independent voices that exist across the city. We look forward to sharing more films and perspectives with an even wider audience,” says Caragh Jones, Partnerships Manager at Bristol24/7.
