FAUK supports ‘Film Archives for the Future’ training programme announced by Yorkshire Film Archive

Yorkshire Film Archive are delighted to announce an award from Creative Skillset to deliver ‘Film Archives for the Future’ a new programme of training and CPD events for the film heritage sector. The programme focusses on organisational development at a time of huge change for the sector as it steps up to meet the challenges – and opportunities – of transition from analogue to digital operations.

Sue Howard, Director of the Yorkshire and North East Film Archives says: ‘We know that the impact of digital technologies, and the huge opportunities it opens up, will affect every aspect of work, and that is why we were so keen to take an overall organisational approach. We are all very aware of the huge technical challenges around digital preservation, storage, and supporting infrastructures, but we also need to build our skills base so that we respond positively to the wider opportunities – how we curate and share our content, how we interact with our audiences, how we negotiate and build new business models, and how we ensure we have the knowledge and confidence to govern, guide and sustain our organisations through such a period of change’

Creative Skillset, the industry skills body for the Creative Industries says: ‘We are delighted to support Yorkshire Film Archive’s essential training that seeks to better understand the impact and meaning of digitisation for the film heritage sector.’

‘Film Archives for the Future’ is also supported by Film Archives UK, the professional membership organisation bringing together archives, archivists, associate organisations and individuals committed to the work and development of the UK’s rich moving image heritage.

Dr Frank Gray, Chair of FA UK says ‘We have a strong commitment to the continuing professional development of colleagues working across the film heritage sector. The more we can expand and deepen our skills base, and the more we can share our expertise, can only serve to strengthen our collective endeavours to safeguard the collections we are responsible for, and to make them widely accessible, both now and in the future’
