Transformative Film Culture for Hull 2017
Hull was announced the winner of UK City of Culture 2017 in 2013. The award is given to a city every four years that demonstrates the belief in the transformational power of culture. To deliver the programme Hull City Council set up Hull UK City of Culture 2017 as an independent company and charitable trust.
Transformative Film Culture for Hull 2017 has been developed by Film Hub North in partnership with Hull 2017 and is Lottery funded by the BFI. The project brings together key film festivals, programmers and event producers working across the Film Hub North region to collaborate on a year-long, city-wide film programme inspired by the themes of Hull 2017. The project will ensure Hull’s independent film exhibition sector gain in depth programming and operating experience and gather evidence to support ongoing film provision beyond 2017.
