Graham Relton (YFA/NEFA) comments

“Increasingly, we are aware that researchers and producers are looking for archive footage that shows a different perspective. The Yorkshire and North East Film Archive, like our regional film archive partners, have previously unseen, or less well-known footage, which can bring a new edge to programmes. Being part of the FOCAL workshop gives us a great platform to share our experience and showcase our collections and services with a wider broadcast audience. Join us to find out more.”


All online workshops are free for FOCAL members and available to non-members for a nominal fee of £10.00 plus VAT (if applicable)
