Friday 30th Juy 11am-12 noon on zoom

Drawing on the collections of twelve of the UK’s regional and national film archives, Lost Connections (13mins) offers a poetic response to our collective experiences since March 2020 and highlights film’s unique ability to serve as a chronicler of social change, a preserver of memory, and a balm for both viewer and maker.

This is an opportunity to see a preview of this new short film which explores this extraordinary period in our present-day lives through moving, prescient and powerful images of the past. Following a screening of the film, join in a discussion about the making of Lost Connections and its onward journey to audiences later this year – both online and available for cinemas to book across the UK. Andy Robson, Screen Heritage Producer at Film Hub North, will be in conversation with the archivists, artists and filmmakers behind the film.

This session will take place via Zoom Webinar, with opportunities for participants to ask questions and share experiences via the chat function. Register for your free place here
