Screenings and Special Events
As well as our extensive archive of films available online, we take North East on Film on the road too, connecting the people and communities of the North East with their magnificent film heritage through our programme of curated screenings and events.
These events range from screenings about specific areas or communities, to meet & greets as part of our Film Search & Rescue project. We even team up with partners in the region to host specially curated standalone screenings based around specific industries, themes, events or activities.
Delivered by our expert archive team who provide insight into the magical films included onscreen, our events are a great opportunity to meet up and enjoy captivating footage of days gone by on the big screen.
Come along to the following events:
