The Film

We are delighted that our Open Bridges film partners are Humber Film Creative Community and Octovision Media.

The Open Bridges film is made by Humber Film Creative Community and Octovision Media, filmed by 16 film makers who captured each bridge movement on the night, and from the MV Syntan edited by Phillip Codd and featuring a new musique concrète soundtrack by BAFTA winning composer John Stead.

To watch the film settle down in a comfy chair, turn the lights down & the volume up and soak it up, it’s an immersive experience.

Open Bridges is a whole tapestry of threads. It’s a celebration of Hull’s lifeblood, the River Hull, 13 movable bridges, the vessels that use the river and the heritage & culture that have grown up in both East and West Hull.
