What's in a name?

By Leslie Grace | A! Magazine for the Arts | September 26, 2016

Bristol's film festival's name "PUSH!" is rooted in history.

The original Bristol sign, built in 1910, carried the slogan "Push! That's Bristol" to reflect the push in growth Bristol was undergoing in the early 1900s. By 1915, the sign had been moved to span State Street, and in 1921, the old slogan was replaced with the current one: "Bristol: A Good Place to Live."

That historic desire to move forward seemed to suit the new film festival (now in its second year) and to underline the goal of bringing new artistic growth to our community.
