City On Screen – Birmingham Heritage Week Screening
September 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm
City on Screen is a fascinating documentary that explores the rich cinematic and television history of Birmingham, and its more recent fall from grace.
It is a film that comes at a moment when Birmingham is undergoing a bit of a cultural renaissance thanks to the international hit Peaky Blinders, but although the city is home to a hit show and a number of new film and television production companies, it still finds itself lagging behind other cities when it comes to artistic infrastructure.
Ford’s documentary pulls no punches and tries to answer the difficult questions, including, why Birmingham is falling behind? And also what can be done to help Birmingham become a major destination for film productions, festivals, and other cultural events once again?
