Karl Marx and Cinema

BRISTOL RADICAL FILM FESTIVAL

27th Feb – 4th March 2012

The Bristol Radical Film Festival screens some of the most socially and politically engaged documentary films from around the world. Taking place over the course of a week, the festival hosts screenings in a variety of community-based venues, culminating in a weekend of screenings, talks, workshops and debates at the entirely volunteer-run and not-for-profit cinema, The Cube. The variety of venues reflects the festival’s aim to bring this kind of cinema out from the shadows and into the community.

The fight back is on. Come and see what cinema can do to help.
