The 1st Bluescreen back at our spiritual home since Jan 2020!! Welcome Back!

We can’t tell you how much we have looked forward to this moment, screening Short Films back at the Cube again!

Its great to be back, but to make this first Bluescreen work, we need to make a few changes to the structure of the evening, but fear not, tonight will actually be a bit of familiar old skool Bluescreen, combined with the new skool Bluestream…

Although it seems weird and quite un-bluescreen like to put rules and regs in place for one of our events, above all else we want to give people a safe and relaxing environment to enjoy Bluescreen back at the Cube, so here’s the lowdown...

Films: Films for the foreseeable to be sent in before the event as per Bluestream, as we want to avoid the usual ‘bluescreen bottleneck’ of people at FOH on entry.
We are also going to have a shorter programme too, to limit the time people are in the same space. So we are going to set the total duration of films to be shown to 90 minutes and once we hit 90 mins worth of Films received, we won’t be taking any more films in, but they will be shown first up at the next Bluescreen. (Details/dates to send in Films etc below)

Screening: In addition to the physical Films Screening in the Cinema, we will also be simultaneously streaming the Films online, so for this reason we will be putting together an MP4 Compilation a few days before the event. From a tech pov it will make it a lot easier for us to manage on the night.
It will sadly mean we won’t be able to give Filmmakers the opportunity to Intro their Films on the night, but to get around this we thought if people could send in a Video Intro instead, if they wanted.

Audience: We have been thinking long and hard about this, and so for our first one back we will be easing you and ourselves back in and limiting capacity to 30 people. People will also need to buy a ticket prior to the event.

Filmmakers: Will have free entry as per usual and their names will be on FOH on entry, so Filmmakers there is no need to buy a ticket. And we will confirm when your Film has been included in the Programme, to see if you can make it to the screening. We can arrange to seat you next to someone who is in your household/bubble, if required.

Tickets: Will still be a bargain £3.00! There will be no tickets on the door, they will need to be purchased before the event from Headfirst. Tickets will be sold in a maximum of TWO people per each TICKET BLOCK, but we are also putting up a few ONE Person seating options too. Blocks AA to OO will be available to book (See Cubes show info below for seating plan). Hopefully that all makes sense.

Bar: At the moment The Cube is not running a Bar, due to potential space and congregating issues but you can BYO drinks, until further notice.

Please also read the Cube’s Socially Distanced Show Info for events at the Cube https://cubecinema.com/pages/about/socially-distanced-show-information/

If any of the above changes, we will of course update you, so keep checking back in to the Cube Programme Page and also on our FB and Twitter Pages. Any questions please do drop us an email.

So to the Film Submissions…
As usual we are looking for Digi Short Films from the BA (Bristol Area) and can be about any subject or genre. The choice is yours!

Submissions are open from – 1st July -

And here’s what you need to do:
Send us your Film via WeTransfer to bluescreen@cubecinema.com, headed up ‘July Bluescreen’.
And to make things easier for us, the films will need to be in the following format:
20 Minutes and under
MP4 only
H264 Video Compression
File size up to 1GB
Data rate under 5,000kb/sec
Ideally the smallest size file you can manage is best for us.

If you want to send in an Intro to your film (this is not compulsory btw), send either a short Video or Audio clip of 10 to 60 seconds long – Please send this as a separate MP4 file.

Film submission end date will be: 19th July.
