BASE Movies Nights! Get Involved!


Are you interested in presenting a movie/documentary/video/a talk at BASE film nights? Any chance you’d also like to cook for BASE Cafe? :) You can do either or both, as you like (no need to cook!)

The event runs every Sunday. Dinner served at 6, film/even starting at 7 pm. If you are interested, would you put down a few dates that you’d like and the activity you’d be up for: either film/event (write down the provisional name) or cooking or both.


The idea is to have a fun and relaxing social time that will bring together the interested community to watch movies/documentaries together and have discussion about them. It is an opportunity to look at the variety of struggles and topics that different activist collectives in Bristol focus on and have it as a space to highlight some issues or discuss topics. The screening material can be explicitly political, a documentary, but also more mainstream/not explicitly political thing.

The BASE film nights collective will create a poster, will do advertising, provide technical support and physical space, and facilitate the screening and discussion. You would provide the screening
material (if you don’t have it, we can help finding it) and come to the screening, you will have the floor to say a few words about your collective and why you chose this film and then take part in the
discussion.

Attached is the poster call out. It would be great if you could share it with your group and join us.

Solidarity!

2.00pm – Open Planning Meeting + speaker from CAAT
