For eight years, the University of Hertfordshire has worked on ‘The Elstree Project’ to celebrate the output of Elstree and Borehamwood’s studios, by recording almost 70 oral history interviews with cast and crew members. To further recognise some of the most iconic productions made at the studios, The Elstree Project and UH Arts - in partnership with our friends at Elstree Studios and StudioCanal - are hosting ‘Elstree Originals’; the first in a very special series of film screenings and live interviews celebrating films made in Hertfordshire.
We are delighted to announce our first Elstree Originals film: The Railway Children screening. Before the film, we will be holding a live Q&A with actors and producers of The Railway Children, led by Elstree Studios’ Chairman Morris Bright MBE. This event provides a unique opportunity to hear all the behind the scenes exclusives from the set and learn more about this iconic and beloved production.
