Pop Up Docs are back with an eclectic season of films!

Posted on Updated on

It’s exciting times at Pop Up Docs and so we felt we had to share some of our news…

Earlier in the year Pop Up Docs was awarded funding from the BFI Neighbourhood Touring Cinema Fund with the intention of helping us to grow, and to help grow other community cinemas in the Bath area. We have also begun a partnership with Bath Artist Studios and gained two new members of the team: Jon Newey as Development Executive and Scarlett Mosnier as Project Manager. Its lovely to have them on board!

We’ve got quite a few events lined up for the coming season, including a collaboration with Bath Film Fest on what is being heralded as by far the best documentary of 2016, CAMERAPERSON (with Skype Q&A with the director). Pop Up Docs subscribers can get priority tickets (ahead of the general release later this week) by visiting Bath Box Office and using the code BFFRIENDS2016.

There is also a chance to fully immerse yourself in US Presidential Election by watching the rarely screened 1993 film THE WAR ROOM (following Bill Clinton’s first Presidential campaign) and watching coverage of the election itself as the results come in! Tickets not yet on sale but watch this space…

But our next event is more of a family affair for half term: one that is aimed at 0-100 year olds. A film for everyone: BABIES will have both a morning and an afternoon screening at New Oriel Hall so you have no excuse to miss it! Grab your tickets now!



A half-term treat for the whole family, described as a “wildlife film with human babies.” 11am & 2.30pm, Thurs 27th Oct @ New Oriel Hall, Larkhall



A night of live election coverage and a screening following Bill Clinton’s 1993 election campaign. 7pm (screening 8pm),Tues 8th Nov @ Venue TBC
