  • Do something special for Durham!

    Held within the North East Film Archive's vaults are over 600 films - more than a quarter of a million feet of film - comprising the heart and soul of Durham during the 20th century.

    We're asking for your support to raise £5,000 to help preserve and share Durham's film heritage. The collection reveals an extraordinary record of our times, from the changes in industry to the evolving landscape and architecture of the city. Holidays to home life, schooldays to local events. Community occasions such as the miners' galas, popular jazz bands, local crafts and traditions - all captured on film, all building into a compelling visual legacy of the city.

  • Celebrating the success of our North East On Film Search & Rescue campaign!

    After launching last September, our Search & Rescue campaign has now generated over 800 film submissions from the public – and we’re still on the search for more!

    The Search & Rescue campaign, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, is part of our North East on Film project.  As part of the project we are asking the people of the northeast - from the Borders to Teesside - to send in their forgotten film and videotape collections so that they will be preserved for future generations.
