Film Archives UK (FAUK), which was incorporated as a limited company with charity objects in 2011, brings together professionals from film and television archives in the UK that are working to deliver public benefit. It is also open for associate membership by those agencies and commercial interests that have a direct interest in the preservation, storage, cataloguing, copying, access and re-use of archive moving image and sound.
FAUK invites you to become a part of the network of archivists, industry professionals, scholars and supporters of moving image preservation and access.
Whether you are facing the challenges of archiving analogue material in the increasingly digital world, grappling with solutions for born-digital materials, or have an interest in exploring the rich potential of our screen heritage to engage users and audiences, FAUK will introduce you to the fast changing world of moving image archiving.
