New Southampton Film – Make It SO


10 Mar, 2022

Yesterday we launched our new film entitled Make it SO. The film is the final part in the Make It SO campaign promoting Southampton’s bid to become the UK’s City of Culture in 2025.

Narrated by Southampton born poet Issa Loyaan Farrah-Kelly, it features more than 40 local people and 25 locations showcasing the city’s assets and truly diverse communities. The film is a representation of the Southampton’s pride and passion, evoking why we need to be crowned as UK City of Culture 2025!

Already on the longlist of eight, we (Southampton), will learn if we have made the shortlist of four shortly. The winning city will then be announced UK City of Culture 2025 by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in late May.

Let culture scale walls.

Let it be for all.

Let Southampton grow.

Let’s #MakeitSO!
