Search the Catalogue

Welcome to the YFA and NEFA catalogue.  Our diverse collections include documentaries, newsreels, advertising films, and home movie collections, capturing the rich moving image heritage of both regions over the past 120 years.  We have hundreds of films available to view online, free of charge, and regularly add more content.

Explore our collections using the Quick Search box at the top of every page, or, if you’re looking for something more specific, use the search boxes on the left to narrow down your results.

You can choose to search for films from both archives, or just select those from YFA or from NEFA.

Not all our films are available to view online.  To search films that are available to view, select 'Yes' from the 'Has Video' dropdown menu on the left.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or if you’d like to view a film that’s not online, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.  We can arrange an appointment for you to visit our archives in York and Middlesbrough to view onsite.

You’ll also find lots of information about using our footage in the About Us section.
