Filmed in Bristol
Are you ready for your close up? There's a thriving film and TV industry in the city, which is home to Aardman Animations and BBC Bristol as a starter for ten. Incidentally, major motion picture Starter for Ten, starring James McAvoy was one of the many movies filmed in Bristol too.
Throughout the years, Bristol has been chosen as a filming location for many famous productions from Only Fools and Horses and Casualty to Sherlock and Skins. You can see more on the Bristol Film Office website.
We've also been home to some famous movie faces and names including Cary Grant, Hugo Weaving, Jeremy Irons and even David Prowse who played Darth Vader!
As well as actors, we like to cultivate new creative talent amongst film-makers and producers too and the Annual Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival is Europe's leading short film festival and offers a gateway to the likes of the BAFTAS, Oscars and European Film Awards.
