FAUK commissioned report 'Invisible Innovators' launched by UEA
Next meeting? 28th June 2021
Welcome to FAUK!
Film Archives UK (FAUK) brings together archives, archivists, associate organisations and individuals who are interested in and committed to the work and development of the UK’s public sector film archives.
For a taste of the material we hold, why not watch our video showcasing some of the treasures from our collections?
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

New Manager at London’s Screen Archive
Heading to Manchester for FAUK’s next meeting is newly appointed Manager of London Screen Archive’s, Beatrice Harbour.
With former Heritage Manager, Clare Watson, taking up her new post as Director at MACE earlier this year (we hope to hear more on this on FAUK website!), we congratulate Beatrice on her new appointment.
Beatrice has worked in the film and moving image heritage sector for over 10 years. She began her career at The Illuminated Film Company, working in animation production and development, including on Oscar nominated feature The Red Turtle. She moved to the BFI in 2010, where she secured funding for activity across the organisation, with a particular focus on film restoration, preservation and access at the BFI National Archive. Beatrice will lead on the management, strategic direction and fundraising for London’s Screen Archives (LSA), working closely with the LSA partner network and steering group to develop and deliver film heritage access and conservation projects across London. Beatrice’s particular interest is non-fiction industrial film, and her (current!) favourite film from the LSA network is All on a Winters Day from the City of Westminster Archives Centre. Beatrice also sits on the advisory committee of the London Bike Kitchen, and spends the rest of her time in the cinema, on a bike or singing in a choir.
