It’s All About The River is a month-long film festival on the banks of the River Tamar.
The World Heritage Site is on the border between Cornwall and Devon, and the festival is part of the River Tamar Project, a major cultural programme that aims to use art to reconnect local people with the river that runs through their communities.
Each film in the festival is linked to a river theme, combining epic cinema, historical archive and documentary film and premieres of new, specially commissioned films by international artists.
It’s All About The River opened on September 12th with an outdoor screening of classic Steamboat Bill Jr, and the festival continues until October 12th, and highlights include a screening of Apocalypse Now aboard a ferry floating in the river itself on October 9th; free screenings for kids throughout the festival; and commissioned films from artists such as John Akomfrah, Melanie Manchot, Mikhail Karikis and more.
