The Yorkshire and North East Film Archive is seeking three new Trustees to join its Board

Would you like to be part of an award-winning organisation whose passion is connecting communities to their film heritage?

Based in York and Middlesbrough, the Yorkshire and North East Film Archive’s purpose is to find, preserve and provide access to the moving image heritage collections made in, or about, Yorkshire and the North East of England. These collections showcase over 125 years of life in the region: the people, places, changing landscapes and industries. The Archive was recently voted Footage Company of the Year by its global peers at the FOCAL (Federation of Commercial Audiovisual Libraries) Awards.

Lost Connections

You can also view over 2000 films here on our website.

Above all, we are looking for people with a passion for and interest in our work who can bring skills to help us as we develop new ways to bring our valuable collections to wider audiences. We are particularly interested in individuals who can help us with digital transformation, archive and collections management, legal and charity compliance, and reaching younger people and more diverse communities. We are seeking at least one candidate with strong connections to the North East.

We aspire to have a diverse and inclusive workplace and strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from a wide range of backgrounds to apply and join our Board of Trustees. Previous Trustee experience is not necessary.
