011: Time and Tide

Feb/March 2021


The sea/film team are back for 2021, working on our next community cinema idea for the Yorkshire Coast. We are exploring time. 

Living through the pandemic, how is our understanding of time changing? The days seem long, but the weeks & months pass quickly. So, how does cinema help us to understand ideas about time and our future? Why is film so vital in capturing a moment in time? And how did people and places from Scarborough’s history help us to think about space & time differently? 


Our project is called Time and Tide vol 1 and is happening in two ways. Firstly, we are putting together an online programme of short films that will feature a mix of documentary, art film and work from local filmmakers that explores some of these big ideas around time. This programme of film will be available online, alongside sea/film words offering a context to create a shared understanding around these films. 

Secondly, we are creating another zine for the Yorkshire Coast. Would you like to get involved? We’re taking submissions of photography, creative writing, art and ideas to feature in our zine - everything related to ideas around time: living through the pandemic and how our coastline, town & sense of place helps us to understand the passing of time. Do you have any pictures, memories or stories you want to share? 

Please send over submissions by Friday March 5th to seafilmscarborough@gmail.com. The zines will be printed, everyone contributing receives free access to our special film programme. We are particularly keen to hear from under-represented groups and young people on the Yorkshire Coast. 

Our Time and Tide vol 1 zine and film programme will be released the weekend the clocks change, on Friday March 26th. More details on tickets and access will be released in due course on our social media channels. (Times vol 2 will take place in an outdoor setting in October - tbc.)

If you’ve got any questions please email the seafilm team on seafilmscarborough@gmail.com or call Paul on 0751 3121502.
