Event: Heritage Open Days Film Screening: Routes – Networks – Connections, Tues 10 Sep 2024


Join us to celebrate Heritage Open Days on Tuesday 10th September 2024 for an archive film screening

This event is free to attend, but spaces are limited so please reserve your seat in advance.  Let us know you’re coming >>>

We’ll screen an exclusive selection of films from EAFA’s collections responding to this year’s theme of Routes – Networks – Connections; images and voices on film that convey a sense of community in your part of the UK.

Drawing on over a century of archive footage, our film screening will highlight stories of human connection and companionship.  We’ll screen films that explore the experience of new communities as well as featuring nostalgic journeys in places you’ll most certainly recognise.

This event will feature both digital screenings and projection from film.

The films will be introduced by Dr Nick Warr, EAFA’s Academic Director.

Tickets are free but spaces are limited, so we recommend reserving your space. To book, please fill in this form, or contact us.  The screening will take place at 11am.
