Since the earliest days of film making nearly 120 years ago, people have been recording the places they live – their families, streets, schools, shops, workplaces, important events, everyday lives – all of which have been captured on film by professionals, amateur enthusiasts, cine clubs and home movie makers alike.

Hull is no exception, and the Yorkshire Film Archive are launching their new Film Search Hull campaign to find and preserve Hull’s very own film heritage, so that once again people will be able to see and share the amazing images and stories revealed through these astonishing film collections.
