‘Whether you are 70 or 17, everyone has a story to tell about what it means to be young’

A specially compiled programme of rarely screened films from the collections of the East Anglian Film Archive.  Featuring an extraordinary range of local news and documentaries shot throughout our region,  Forever Young celebrates the diversity of British youth culture from the early 1970s through to the 1990s. Viewed together, these films offer a unique history of the profound social movements that transformed British society, and how they connected to the trailblazing music (and sometimes outlandish fashions!) of the times.

The screening will be accompanied by a panel discussion featuring; Professor Matthew Worley (Professor of Modern History, University of Reading), Katie Sarginson (music history researcher), Guy Martin (Director, Reel Connections) and will be hosted by Kitty Perrin (Singer-songwriter & Presenter of BBC Introducing).

We’re looking for your photos and stories of yourself and your friends from the period 1971 – 1996. For more information email: Reel Connections at

Forever Young is supported by the BFI Film Audience Network with National Lottery funding as part of New Directions.
