Moving North: Rural Yorkshire

Moving North: Rural Yorkshire

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 Yorkshire that have been captured on film over the past one hundred years. Presented by the Yorkshire Film Archive 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 hos telling, fell runs, and much more.
