Celebrating a Bristol Film Pioneer

Thu 7th September 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

- Free

After the huge success of celebrating one of Bristol’s film heroes, South West Silents and Dawkins Ales are proud to announce another chance to raise a glass to celebrate the great Bristol film pioneer, William Friese-Greene.

Born in Bristol on 7th September 1855, William Edward Green (the Friese-Greene was added later) is classed by many as one of the founding fathers of British Cinema and a key figure in the early development of cinematography as a whole. In some circles he is celebrated, while in others he is damned for filing patents on devices he allegedly didn’t invent.

On Thursday 7th September 2017 (Greene’s birthday in fact) we will celebrate the inventor’s birthday by celebrating the return of the beer dedicated to him. ‘The Friese-Greene’ will be launched at the Dawkins’ pub The Victoria, Clifton (next to the Lido) with a selection of films inspired by the work of William Friese-Greene on the night. The launch party starts at 7:00pm and will end late.
Please arrive whenever you like, the doors and bar will be open!
