Digital Heritage East Anglia Films

These are some of the fantastic people who are out there busily saving archive films from the ravages of time so that we can continue to peek into life in times gone by. The Digital Heritage Project is a cross-channel digitisation project that aims to increase public access to a unique collection of archive films from the East of England and Upper Normandy in France from the turn of the 20th century. Norwich HEART is collaborating with Rouen based screen agency Pôle Image Haute-Normandie and the archive film collections of the East Anglian Film Archive to bring this valuable, moving image history alive for modern audiences.

Screened on tour with the Firstsite Art Gallery, various locations in East Anglia – January 2011
