Not Forgotten Town is a music-based video featuring community groups and film clips submitted by local people. The soundtrack is based on A Forgotten Town which was written about Hull in the 1980s by Hull-born Henry Priestman for the band The Christians.
Updated to highlight Hull’s transformation in 2017, it will establish Humber Film – a team of local film and design professionals including BAFTA and Rank Foundation award winners – giving a long-term environment to identify and nurture local creative talent.
The final product A Place They Called Forgotten Town is a celebration of Hull, made by and starring its people.
Come along to a free screening of the music video ahead of its digital release on 28 Feb, with screenings from 7.30pm and then at 15-minute intervals until 8.45pm.
