Event description

Description

How is film changing perceptions and conversations around mental health?

One of Bristol’s most innovative hubs for film, Screenology, would like to invite you for a screening of our filmmakers’ work! Join us for a night of short films and a lively panel discussion with filmmakers and mental health professionals.

“Frames Of Mind” is a 90 min screening programme that will explore stories of anxiety, health struggles, obsession and other extremes. Showcasing the work of our students, tutors and partners, we will take a look how emerging artists from Bristol are depicting these very current issues in fresh, original ways.
With films ranging from 15 seconds to 25 minutes, you will have a chance to reflect and
discuss the influence of film in expressing vulnerability that is so needed in the ever-changing world of the 21st century.

The event is open to people of all ages, but due to the difficult topics discussed in some films we advise against bringing children and people under 16 years old.

There will be a bar at the venue.

THE SCHEDULE
Doors open 6:15 PM
The screening commences 6:45 PM with one break and a Q&A

Written by a Polish duo of Bristol-based female filmmakers (Sonia Wargacka and Weronika Dwornik), this film tells a story of Alba Williams, a performance artist in her late 20s who seems to have the life many people dream of: filled with art and people. When everything seems right, but definitely isn't, Alba decides to use her art as therapy. Trying to deal with mental and physical health problems, Alba is committed to leaving behind her greatest art installation yet.
Shot as Sonia's graduation project, this will be the official premiere of the film.
