Sea / Film is a film programming and events organisation committed to brining alternative film and cinema to Yorkshire, the Humber and the North East.


Our Vision? Use film and alternative programming to inspire new connections, conversation and community and introduce new genres and ways of screening cinema.


How? We will support local filmmakers and people with hidden creativity - bringing people together and offering a platform for emerging talent. We will also be bringing people and film from outside the region for inspiring new events and experimental cinema and genres.

We want to hear from you! and are open to collaboration with artists filmmakers/venues/festivals etc or programming events in and around Yorkshire, the Humber and the North East.
