BFI Britain on Film: Coastal

In Autumn last year we planned and delivered the last events for the Britain on Film Project. We hosted another event at the beautiful Octagon Chapel here in Norwich as part of Norwich Sound & Vision festival, and were lucky enough to partner with The Mo Museum at Sheringham to host the final event right by the sea.

I partnered with long term collaborators Mark and James who make up B R O A D S. We were lucky enough to have composer and general virtuoso Roger Eno headlining the Octagon Chapel event. We used footage of the Norfolk and Suffolk coastal region from the British Film Institute and East Anglian Film Archive, with films dating from the early 1930's right through to the 1970's.  

You can view all the films through the BFI player, but here's a few of my favourites: 

Holiday on the North Norfolk Coast (1952)

The Sea Breaks Through (1938)

North Nofolk Coast: Blakeney to Walcott (1966)
