Venues & map
Bristol is home to amazing architecture and a beautiful lively harbourside – and we’re lucky to be able to host the Festival in some of the most iconic venues around this great city.
The two main venues used during the week of the Festival are the Watershed and Arnolfini - both on the harbourside. This year we are spreading some of our activity further afield as well and details of these venues are also listed below

Watershed is a Grade II listed, accessible building on Bristol’s historic harbourside offering three cinemas, flexible spaces ideally suited for the tradeshow and a light and airy Café/Bar. Delegates will have exclusive access to Watershed facilities throughout the Festival week.
Arnolfini is a unique venue with an enviable position on Bristol’s Harbourside close to the Watershed. Incorporating art galleries, a live art/music/cinema venue, bookshop and café bar (which is a partner restaurant of the Festival), Arnolfini is a dynamic and versatile location.
Cinema De Lux
Cinema De Lux offers Bristol’s cinemagoers an experience that is unrivalled in both size and luxury. Delegates will get an opportunity to attend a special film screening at Cinema De Lux and will also have access to the exclusive Director’s Lounge for a post screen reception.
The people of Bristol have been enjoying music at Colston Hall for nearly 140 years. This iconic building has played host to some of the all time greats in the music and entertainment world and this year will be no different as we are hosting an evening of film and music for our Sir Peter Scott event.
Passenger Shed, Brunel’s Old Station
Bristol Temple Meads is one of the oldest train stations in the world and Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s original adjoining Passenger Shed is a beautiful historical room with a vast single span roof – a wonder of it’s time in 1841. The Passenger Shed plays host to our glittering Panda Awards ceremony where we celebrate the very best in natural history filmmaking.
