The Yorkshire and North East Film Archive’s purpose is to find, preserve and provide access to the moving image heritage collections made in, or about, Yorkshire and the North East of England. These collections showcase over 125 years of life in the region: the people, places, changing landscapes and industries. Our role is to ensure that these extraordinary films are preserved and made accessible for everyone to see and enjoy, both now and for the benefit of future generations. Central to our work is curating content that connects with audiences, revealing stories and reflections focused on people, place and identity.


The Archive creates programmes of work to enable people to watch, learn from and enjoy the film collections. These include annual programmes of outreach screenings, as well as exhibition work with a range of cultural heritage partners, education programmes, and a strong record of inclusion of material in television broadcasts. It has an exemplary track record of delivering a range of projects with partners such as the British Film Institute, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and The National Archives.
