Birmingham on Film is back, and this year we’re casting off along the city’s waterways…

Last year we launched a month-long season of Birmingham-related archive film, screening the best (and worst) films made in and about Brum. Part 2 takes place 9-17 September, with a particular focus on Birmingham’s 35 miles of canals. Expect retro kids TV, Midlands alien sightings and everyone’s favourite disc jockey Alan Partridge.

In a final bit of good news, Sir Cliff is back to grace our screens once again for a very special screening of Take Me High aboard our very own canal boat/floating cinema. Seating is very limited for this one so grab your tickets quick; this may even be the last time we screen it (although probably not…)

Birmingham on Film II is part of Birmingham Heritage Week, which runs from 7-17 September. Peruse the full Birmingham On Film programme here.

There’s also a bunch of other waterway-related screenings and events happening in the West Midlands this autumn. Full details here.
