Super 8 Stories Anniversary Screening

Super 8 Stories Anniversary Screening

Date: 22/06/2024 14:15


Twenty years ago a collaboration between DoubleBand Films and BBC Northern Ireland brought the world of amateur archive film to local TV screens in a new way. Long before the modern practice of colouring black and white film, Super 8 Stories brought the past to life using only original colour film to give a vibrant new slant on how Northern Irish people worked and played in decades normally seen through monochrome. By interviewing the film makers ad participants, then blending their thoughts with the archive and well chosen music from the periods on show, the series won the hearts of audiences and ran for several highly popular years.

With it recently celebrating its twentieth anniversary, director Brian Henry Martin and archivist Evan Marshall have picked a selection of the very best stories from the series and will be sharing the secrets of how this landmark programme was made, while also detailing its enduring legacy.

The event will be held in the Lecture Theatre of the Ulster Museum at 2.15pm on 22 June 2024. Tickets are available from the link below on a Pay What You Can scale starting at £4.50
