Nenescape on Film

Screen Northants will be working with us to deliver Nenescape on Film - an exciting project which will document the development and delivery of our partners' projects, as well as producing material to help promote our work. We'll be working with volunteers to get stuck in with helping to choose filming locations, writing interview questions and getting in front of the camera.

Also included in this project is the production of a feature film, which tells the story of a young boy trying to find his father. The landscape of the Nene Valley provides a stunning backdrop to this tender tale of a father-son relationship. This film is co-funded with BBC Children in Need, and involves young people in the Northamptonshire film industry. All workshops and filming sessions were free and gave participants the opportunity to work with professionals, build up their CV and most importantly, have fun whilst getting real experience working in film.

Watch a short ‘Behind the Scenes’ film below to get a taste of the feature film and see what role the River Nene plays in this forthcoming movie.

Supported by BBC Children in Need and Heritage Lottery funded Nenescape, we have produced a feature film set along the River Nene involving young people from Northamptonshire. The feature is set to be released in 2019.

View the teaser trailer below.

Rory wants to see his dad. His residential care home can't get hold of him and neither can Rory. So Rory decides to make his own way to Northampton to find him using the River Nene as his guide.
