A public screening of archive film of the Canterbury area discovered during research by Tim Jones on amateur filmmaking. The films reveal the changing face of Canterbury and the surrounding area from the 1930s onwards and give an insight into the development of amateur filmmaking. The screenings are interactive in nature, providing an opportunity for the audience to share their knowledge of the local area.

This screening included film of the Archbishop’s Enthronement in 1928, the ‘Flying Flea’ at Bekesbourne aerodrome and unique behind the scenes footage of Ken Russell making his first feature film, French Dressing.

Public Screening at Canterbury Christ Church University on 28 Feb 2015 and 21 March 2015.
