To celebrate the arrival of the Olympic Torch this May in Bristol, local filmmakers were invited to create quality short films in just 117 hours based in and focused on Sports, Games and Play in the city.
The aim of the event was to promote Bristol as a filming and sporting location. From 19 May, filmmakers were challenged to make a short film up to three minutes long. Each film had to contain some elements of the three themes that are the core of the M Shed museum but with the overall theme of Sport, Games and Play.
Bristol People - consider the activities past and present that make Bristol, Bristol.
Bristol Places - focus on the physical and dynamic city, the ways that people have shaped and experienced the city.
Bristol Life - explore people’s shared experiences in the city
The finished films forms part of the city’s memory, and joined the M Shed museum collections - they are now available to view by visitors.
