The first instalment of our Filmed and Not Forgotten Video Diary is now online! In Episode 1, Curator Martin Watts introduces the project and takes a look at a film made in Gawthorpe, a small village in West Yorkshire, in May 2014.
In early 2004, YFA was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to research, preserve and make accessible a previously neglected aspect of our regional moving image heritage: the history of regional television in Yorkshire.
‘You Should’ve Seen Us’ is a collaboration between writer Paul Mills and YFA, culminating in a presentation covering a period from 1908 – 1958: imagined voices of people in North Yorkshire from before, during and after WWII, to be screened at literary festivals across the region.
Stadium Legends was one of a number of projects supported by Screen Yorkshire,the UK Film Council Digital Film Archive Fund, and the Regional Investment Fund for England (RIFE). YFA worked with sports organisations across the region to bring archive footage to new audiences by producing short screenings of sporting footage for use on the large stadium screens.
