Semanal week 49: East Anglian Film Archive

On Wednesday evening I joined a group from the IET and took a special tour of the East Anglian Film Archive. This is a fascinating place, filled with hundreds of thousands of films and tapes covering over 100 years of moving image recording. Here’s a short taster of the visit.

I left inspired by their enthusiastic dedication, despite continuing paucity of funding, and the possibilities for collection of today’s video alongside the images of long ago.

Special thanks to Louise Lawrence and Pete White for taking us round and explaining everything so helpfully.
