To mark Earth Day, Yorkshire and North East Film Archives are presenting their new National Heritage Lottery funded project Nature Matters over a weekend of free screenings. The film coincides with current exhibition, Interspecies Entanglements.

Through the camera lenses of both amateur and professional filmmakers, historic moving images have recorded the changes in our natural world and our shifting relationship with the environment over the past 120 years.

Visit Studio I on 22- 23 April to explore archive film with an environmental perspective to see how the landscapes of Yorkshire and the North East have changed over time.

A collection of films will be shown on loop in the gallery, exploring themes including weather, the right to roam and activism. 

How has the climate changed? What might it look like in the future? What role does film play in telling this narrative?

Get involved…

The archives are collecting contemporary, nature-based footage from the past twenty years – this might be climate marches, community gatherings, significant natural events or even just local walks and garden wildlife. Head to Site Gallery over the weekend to find out more!
