Moving North: Rural Cumbria

Moving North: Rural Cumbria

Come and join us for a new touring programme of film screenings and events showing Britain on Film at its very best with archive footage from across the decades revealing the people, the places, crafts and traditions, and beautiful landscapes of Rural Cumbria that have been captured on film over the past one hundred years. Presented by the North East and North West Film Archives in partnership with Film Hub North and Cine North, the films will include examples from the film pioneers of the early 1900’s capturing the breath-taking scenery on film for the first time, to local film makers recording farming life through the seasons, local village events and country shows, to home movies of family holidays, walking, youth hostelling, fell runs, and much more.


Appleby Public Hall – 21st September

Appleby-in-Westmorland CA16 6XE

Contrasting footage captured at local events reveal how pastimes have changed over the last century, from a police sports day and boundary riding in early silent footage from 1914 to the joyful blaze of colourful caravans and 70’s fashions arriving at Appleby’s annual horse fair in 1977.
The footage will be presented by the North West Film Archive, who will take the audience on a journey through Appleby’s rich history as seen through the lenses of both amateur and professional filmmakers.
