This is a story of a youth culture that changed a generation and influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come.
This is the story of Northern Soul.


NORTHERN SOUL, a film written and directed by acclaimed English photographer Elaine Constantine will be making its North American Premier at Tiff this month.

The film offers an extensive look into the underground soul music scene in the UK during the 1970s, a scene that Constantine is personally familiar with. As a much-needed escape from the realities of working class teenage life, John (Elliot James Langridge) and Matt (Josh Whitehouse) fall in love with soul music with the intentions of travelling Stateside in search of rare vintage vinyl in the pursuit of becoming DJs.

With its authentic period charm and vintage soundtrack, NORTHERN SOUL garnered a large fan base upon its 2014 release in the UK. Despite playing on just 83 screens, and limited showings at many of those venues, the film landed inside the Top 10 movies at the UK box office.

Screen Dates:
Friday, September 18 at 9:00PM – Ryerson
Satuday, September 19 at 4PM – Scotiabank Theatre

  1. I had not heard of this film before. But my husband is a huge music fan and would love this. Probably we won’t make it to TIFF but hopefully it shows somewhere close to home soon. Thanks for the review.

  2. Sounds pretty good for the music lover, I really enjoy some of the TIFF movies and then there is others that I’m like what…lol
