‘Seen To Be Believed’ – YFA and NEFA celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with new film
The UK soon comes together to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s unprecedented 70 years of reign, and the Yorkshire and North East Film Archives have curated the perfect film to accompany this summer’s celebrations.
“Seen To Be Believed” is a new standalone 55-minute film available to community groups, cinemas, local authorities and other organisations, for screening during the Jubilee festivities.
Taking an affectionate look at how the people of Yorkshire and the North East celebrated coronations, jubilees and royal visits through the decades, it draws inspiration from a famous remark by The Queen: “I have to be seen to be believed”.
The film takes a look through the lens at street parties and pageants, bunting, banners and flag waving,
and discovers what the Royal Family – The Queen in particular – means to the people of our region.
All footage in the film was made solely by Yorkshire and North East Filmmakers, both amateur and
The Queen has always set great store by the importance of family; it has shaped who she is both as a
monarch and a woman. “Seen To Be Believed” includes fascinating footage of King George VI and
Queen Elizabeth, showing how they broke down barriers during visits and appearances, changing the
public’s perception of the Royal Family – something that The Queen herself would build upon when
she took to the throne.
Prince Philip – who she referred to as her “rock” – is, of course, ever-present by her side, and also in
his own right on a number of solo visits to the region.
This very special footage is woven together by a narrator, providing plenty of background information
together with an insight into changing times and perceptions in our regions, that’s sure to delight and
Graham Relton, Archive Manager at the Yorkshire and North East Film Archives said “We’ve searched
through our vaults and selected the very best royal footage held in our collections, made by Yorkshire
and North East filmmakers, to curate a film fit for a Queen.
“It’s available to hire on DVD or as a digital download and is a unique opportunity to celebrate a once
in a lifetime occasion, whilst also supporting your regional film archives.”
