Open Bridges Film at Hull Folk Festival

You can see the award winning Open Bridges film on board the Motor Barge Syntan during Hull Folk and Maritime Festival, on 28th and 29th July 2018. The historic and beautifully restored Syntan will be moored in Hull Marina for the festival. There is folk music galore all weekend at the festival, head along to the Syntan to find out screening times.

In the meantime here’s a taster of the film, the two minute trailer…

“The Open Bridges film is a stunning and unique tour-de-force of film-making, incredibly assured both technically and in the atmosphere it creates.” Nial Adams, Museums Manager, East Riding Museums

“A beautiful short film combining night shots with atmospheric music.” Finalist in Nottingham’s Hothouse Film Festival

The film, produced for Open Bridges by Humber Film is a multi-camera aural and musical documentary showing how Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 bridges over the River Hull raised, swung and closed simultaneously during Hull City of Culture’s Freedom Season. Historic vessels sailed down the river, met by 21st century tugs, to the sound of a new musique concrète work by composer John Stead.

LATEST NEWS 2018: We are delighted to introduce our new Open Bridges project, ‘Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories’, gathering stories to preserve the heritage of the River Hull, its bridges and the people and vessels which have used it over the years.
