For the past year, the Tees Valley International Film Festival has been inviting independent filmmakers from all over the world to submit their films for inclusion in the festival. From the hundreds of entries we received, the following films have been nominated for the Best Documentary Award.

Never Too Young, Never Too Old

Never Too Young, Never Too Old is a documentary that takes a look at the York Normandy Veterans. We hear a few anecdotes from the veterans themselves as they build a picture of what it was like back in 1944 and how they became involved with York Normandy Veterans.

Dir: Mick Child, George Child

Spitfire Overdue

On March 22, 1940, a special photo reconnaissance Spitfire of the Royal Air Force, is shot down above the Netherlands. Who was the pilot, what was the mission back then and what is the role of aerial reconnaissance now?

Dir: Paul Haans

Total running time: 1hr 3mins

You can see both of these films back-to-back in this block showing of the Tees Valley International Film Festival Best Documentary Award nominated films.

  • Pay what you decide information

    Purple Pay What You Decide Logo

    ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!

    We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

    Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

    All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

    Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.
