Films about flooding, and what we can do now

A crash-course in NFM from the experts


The methodology behind "Natural Flood Risk Management" often feels like common sense, though science is showing just how rigorously it can be tested.

About High Water Film

Producer Andy Clark is an ecologist and filmmaker who, like many, only became fully aware of the prevalence and severity of flooding as an issue in the UK after the devastating floods of the winter of 2015/2016.
Getting to know more and more people who’s lives had been turned upside down by the floods of that winter, Andy witnessed an inspirational drive in people to do whatever they could to protect themselves and their local environment against the threat of future flooding.
But where do you start when you want to strengthen an entire community’s, or an entire catchment’s resilience to flooding? Andy started producing High Water Common Ground, which has subsequently developed into all of High Water Film, to help people find the answers to those questions.

The Top Of The Tree

“I found that people often look to what others have done in similar situations around the country, and try to learn from them.

However, people to learn from aren’t always easy to find, or can be  hundreds of miles away working in their own catchments. But there’s no better way to understand something like NFM than seeing it for yourself.

High Water Film brings characterful, first-hand expertise right to your screen, helping connect the people with stories to share with the people who most want - and need - to hear them.”
