Shifting Sands Project in the Press
The Yorkshire Post (L) and Scarborough Review (R)
We Were really pleased to see our event Shifting Sands featured in a number of local and regional papers and radio shows. It really helps get the word out about our work here at sea/film and encourage future audiences to attend our events. We were also featured live on the drive time show of BBC Radio York on 17/1/20, on the night of our final shifting sands event, as well as other local radio Minster FM and Yorkshire Coast Radio.
Zine Call Out
**COMMUNITY CALL OUT**
We want your stories/images/ film of Scarborough
What is sea/film? We’re a new community cinema for Scarborough. Bringing people together through documentaries, short film and alternative film culture on the Yorkshire Coast.
So far we’ve produced five different film events in Scarborough: at community centres, in cafes and at The Stephen Joseph Theatre. We always engage with people, inviting filmmakers, artists and academics to the Yorkshire Coast to involve people in the creative process.
Now, as part of our latest Shifting Sands project, we’re putting a community zine and online project exploring how the environment of Scarborough and the Yorkshire Coast has changed. And is still changing before our eyes. This is not just about climate change, we’re interested in the stories of how people have changed things for the better, or the worse.
So, what are we looking for? We want to give people here a platform to share their stories. This could be your forgotten photos of life in Scarborough, old videos from the Yorkshire Coast (we can help digitalise them), written stories, postcards, letters, or artwork.
We are also keen to include new original material: photographs, artwork, poems, writings.
Who is it for? People of all ages and backgrounds. We want to hear from people who live here now, who used to live here, holiday here or just have memories of Scarborough.
DEADLINE: for submission is 5pm on Monday January 6th
SUBMIT: email you submissions or any questions to: email@example.com
This is part of a wider project called 'Shifting Sands' supported by Film Hub North. Exploring the changing coastline of Scarborough and the North Yorkshire Coast, via documentaries, artist moving image, archive and installation.
