The UEA’s report, ‘Invisible Innovators', making women filmmakers visible across the UK’s Film Archives is now available. It has been commissioned by Film Archives UK to explore the current scale and scope of the holdings of women’s amateur filmmaking within the regional and national film and media archives and to investigate ways of optimising their visibility. 6.3.20

FAUK online event on ‘Access and Exhibition’ offers FAN update & broadcast opportunity.
FAUK held an online event on 22nd August with a focus on ‘Access and Exhibition’ with a good variety of attendees from different departments across Member archives. They were given an update on developments across the Film Audience Network in the light of the BFI’s Screen Culture 2033 beginning in April 2023 by Hugh Odling-Smee, Manager of Film Hub NI and an exciting proposal by TV director/producer, Barney Snow to work with amateur archive on a broadcast proposal.
It was a good opportunity for Hugh to meet Members. His presentation covered strategic priorities for the Film Hubs as a network over the next three years, developments in funding for archive exhibition, areas of research proposed for exhibitor and archive relationships, and the role of Film Hub NI as ‘FAN Champion’ for screen heritage up to 2026. He was also keen to hear from Film Archives UK of areas of mutual benefit that might be explored and it is hoped this has inspired Members and opened up yet more dialogue for archive exhibition.
TV Director/Producer Barney has made over forty documentaries or factual programmes for BBC1, 2, 3, C4, C5 etc over the last twenty five years. He also makes independent documentaries that have been shown in festivals in the UK, Europe and the US. Collaborating with Frank Gray and the team at SASE last year he made three films out of amateur archive material with festival screenings and talks attached.
Barney presented a few clips of his work with archive content and elaborated on a proposal to present to broadcast commissioners extending the idea working with similar or related stories from FAUK Member archives.
We will report on any progress with this exciting proposal of course!
