Hull - Not Forgotten Town

Not Forgotten Town is a music-based video featuring community groups and film clips submitted by local people. The soundtrack is based on A Forgotten Town which was written about Hull in the 1980s by Hull-born Henry Priestman for the band The Christians.

Updated to highlight Hull’s transformation in 2017, it establishes Humber Film – a team of local film and design professionals including BAFTA and Rank Foundation award winners – giving a long-term environment to identify and nurture local creative talent.

The final product A Place They Called Forgotten Town is a celebration of Hull, made by and starring its people. Myself and a number of FEO members including Malcolm Scott, Adam Storch and Graham Jenkinson were volunteers for the filming and production of the video.

Here’s the finished product - well done to all involved…
