FAUK MEMBERS VISIT EAST ANGLIAN FILM ARCHIVE
Members treated to a special tour of EAFA
Our June quarterly meeting was held at the East Anglian Film Archive – owned and operated by the University of East Anglia in Norwich. The Archive itself is located in the Archive Centre at County Hall, adjacent to the Norfolk Record Office.
Director Dr Tim Snelson hosted the visit with members travelling from across the UK. Our meeting was held, fittingly, in the Chittock Research Room opened in 2011 by John Chittock OBE journalist, producer and champion of moving image media since the early 1950s, who donated his archive to EAFA/UEA.
Archive Manager, Angela Graham, took members on a grand tour of the numerous archive vaults explaining the extent of the collections held at EAFA including both the local BBC and Anglia TV collections on a variety of formats.
Head Technician, Pete White introduced members to EAFA’s new CIR Scanner and discussed transcoding and management.
The first film archive to be established outside London, EAFA celebrated 40 years in 2016.
