The BEEF Shed is back and this year has evolved and expanded into a new form – the Octopolis; a collaborative film and sound hub hidden deep in the woods at Supernormal Festival, Braziers Park hosting a schedule of activities and performances from BEEF members and friends throughout the weekend. Come take part in a drawing on 16mm film workshop, a Radio Orchestra, Shirley Pegna’s Midnight Listening to Stars by Starlight amongst other experimental delights.

SUPERNORMAL is a three-day, experimental arts and music festival taking place at Braziers Park in Oxfordshire. It offers a platform for artists, performers and musicians to work collaboratively and creatively for a new kind of audience seeking experiences out of the mainstream.

BEEF is a self-sustaining film and sound collective with an analogue heart initiated to support and nurture experimental film in Bristol. This project is part of the Shed Commissions by Supernormal Festival.
