NEFA are delighted to announce the award of Heritage Lottery Fund Development Funding to help us prepare for a major new programme: ‘North East on Film’, with the ambition to preserve more of our regional film heritage collections, and take them back out to communities across the whole of the North East of England - creating new opportunities for people to see and enjoy moving image collections that have an immediate connection and resonance to their lives and landscapes, through a region-wide programme of screenings, events and online access to hundreds on films.

It was a joyous occasion – with competitions, races, a cross country run, horse trials, highland dancing (many of the Highland Regiments were stationed in Ripon at the time) and a chance to put to one side the darkening clouds of the First World War for just one day.5 May, 2016
