Northeast Historic Film

Northeast Historic Film (NHF) is a moving image archives, incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1986. We are located in the Alamo Theatre, a 1916 cinema building, in Bucksport, Maine. Our mission is to collect and preserve the film and video record of northern New England (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts), and to provide public access to the history, culture, and people of the region embodied in it. Our collections contain ten million feet of film and more than 8,000 hours of video; most of these materials are unique and irreplaceable. NHF cares for film from hundreds of northern New England places in a three-story temperature and humidity controlled vault building, which also provides state-of-the-art storage for institutions from throughout the east coast. Collectively our holdings constitute a record of 20th century regional culture seen from countless angles: the factory floor and the farm, in the woods and at sea, at home with our families and on the streets of our hometowns.

George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film

The Motion Picture Collection at George Eastman House, one of the major moving image archives in the United States, was begun in 1949 by the first curator of film, James Card (1915-2000). His vision, daring and persistence helped to establish George Eastman House as a leading force in the field with holdings of over 25,000 titles and a collection of stills, posters and papers with over 3 million artifacts. In 1996, The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation was founded in order to provide the next generation of archivists with the training and techniques necessary to continue the work of film restoration in the new millennium.The Selznick School is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive and intensive training program within the archive environment, thus giving students hands-on experience in all aspects of film handling, conservation, curatorial matters, programming, and both photochemical and digital restoration.
