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

PASTFORWARD – new website launched as guidance for heritage project planning
The East of England Regional Archive Council (EERAC) has launched a new website PAST-FORWARD which aims to highlight the professional services available from many Record Offices and archive services. The project has been funded by the National Archives (TNA).
The website is intended to support organisations embarking on a project where they may be working with historic documents, photographs, film, sound recordings or oral histories.
The services essentially break down into three areas:
Plan – supporting you with essential budgeting considerations, particularly important during the planning and grant funding application stage of your project
Deliver – from project and archival research to collection, policy, strategy and documentation development, cataloguing, conservation, packaging and storage, digital collecting, gathering oral histories and depositing archives
Engage – a variety of services to help project leads develop ways to engage with the public; from events and celebrations, to book publication, to the creation of exhibitions and websites; help open up projects for the enjoyment and appreciation of others.
