Bristol’s cultural cinema and digital centre, Watershed, has launched a new website to help it reflect the wide range of activities and opportunities it offers.

The new site retains the existing box office and events functions, while providing further content such as filmmaker profiles, short films and information on its DShed and iShed initiatives.

“People in Bristol know that we are a cinema and that we have a café and bar, but they don’t necessarily know about our online archives DShed, or the work that iShed does – particularly the pervasive media studio," said Catrin John, Watershed's communications manager.
