Bristol Films was established in April 2009 as a Community Interest Company by Stephen
Andrews and Graham Egarr.
The company’s purpose is-:
- To facilitate the making of films and video productions as community ventures
- To offer a legal framework for participants interested in making film and video productions
as volunteers offering their services for free
- To encourage the art and practice of film making and video production as a community
activity by participants contributing for no reward
- To provide training to those interested in all aspects of filmmaking and video production
Bristol Films has chosen “Uncertain Proof” as its first production. This semi factual
historical drama is no mean task as it covers a short period set in 1340, with all
the issues of costumes, props and suitable locations. The production team, has been
drawn largely from the membership of the Bristol Film & Video Society (BFVS), who
have previously worked on other historical pieces, such as “Cabot”, “Clarkson” (a
tale of the man who helped Wilberforce end slavery), and most recently “Encounters
with John Wesley”.
