Christmas 2017, where did that last year go?!  This is a time of many traditions, when families by and large get together to over-eat and over-drink, having over-spent. In our family, traditions are key to the smooth running of a successful few days of over-indulgence.

YFA are seeking a consultant to advise on our future digital offer to audiences, users and commercial clients and contribute to informing YFA’s plans for creating proactive digital delivery and engagement framework to transform public interaction with our screen heritage collections, as well as positioning us as a proactive and efficient provider of screen heritage content to commercial users. 

On the 50th anniversary of the great American civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s visit to the University of Newcastle in 1967 to receive an honorary degree, North East Film Archive remembers an amazing discovery of a rare TV interview with Dr King, which cast fresh light on black British broadcast history. Who was the forgotten pioneer who got to meet his hero on that day?

There is not a dull moment in the calendar as this time of year seems to get busier and busier.  Halloween is over, but it is followed on very quickly with Bonfire Night on 5th November.  In the past, we also had to get through Mischievous Night – the evening before Guy Fawkes night – when children, mainly in the north of England, traditionally played small tricks on the neighbours. 

YFA's new DVD - Hull on Film - is now available to buy!  The DVD is priced at £10 (plus postage and packing), and all proceeds from sales go straight back into the preservation of the films – so every purchase helps to safeguard more of our region's film heritage.

The Yorkshire Film Archive are launching their new Heritage Lottery Funded project, ‘Hull on Film’, creating access to the rich film heritage collections of Hull held here at the YFA.  We are now advertising the contract for delivery of the project, which includes screenings, events and an online exhibition.
