New Manager at London’s Screen Archive
Heading to Manchester for FAUK’s next meeting is newly appointed Manager of London Screen Archive’s, Beatrice Harbour.
With former Heritage Manager, Clare Watson, taking up her new post as Director at MACE earlier this year (we hope to hear more on this on FAUK website!), we congratulate Beatrice on her new appointment.
Beatrice has worked in the film and moving image heritage sector for over 10 years. She began her career at The Illuminated Film Company, working in animation production and development, including on Oscar nominated feature The Red Turtle. She moved to the BFI in 2010, where she secured funding for activity across the organisation, with a particular focus on film restoration, preservation and access at the BFI National Archive. Beatrice will lead on the management, strategic direction and fundraising for London’s Screen Archives (LSA), working closely with the LSA partner network and steering group to develop and deliver film heritage access and conservation projects across London. Beatrice’s particular interest is non-fiction industrial film, and her (current!) favourite film from the LSA network is All on a Winters Day from the City of Westminster Archives Centre. Beatrice also sits on the advisory committee of the London Bike Kitchen, and spends the rest of her time in the cinema, on a bike or singing in a choir.
